Endeavour Foundation was awarded a Commonwealth grant to deliver, trial and implement an online safety education program that allows people with intellectual disability to improve their online safety skills and awareness, to safely navigate a digital environment.
By promoting the positive ways in which digital technologies can be used in at risk communities, we are enabling young Australians to navigate the tech future.
“These modules have been designed specifically for people with intellectual disability and feature voice overs from people who attend Endeavour Foundation services. If you want to be more safe online but don't know where to start, you've come to the right place.”
