Childnet International's mission is to work in partnership with others around the world to help make the Internet a safe place for children. Childnet works in three main areas of Access, Awareness, Protection & Policy.
- Access and promoting quality content — Helping children and young people to use the net constructively, showcase quality content and enable others to use our resources and develop new projects.
- Awareness and advice — Helping children and young people acquire new "net literacy" skills and giving advice to industry, organisations, parents, teachers and carers about Internet and mobile safety.
- Protection and policy — Working with others to help protect children from being exploited in the online environments provided by new technologies as well as seeking to initiate and respond to policy changes.
