Our Devon and Cornwall carers Nathan and Kerry McCabe won first prize in this year’s e-safety survey conducted by Guardian Saints. The results of the survey help support our fostering communities and raising awareness of the challenges they face in keeping our young people safe online. This year nearly 400 carers completed Guardian Saints' e-safety online questionnaire to enter their draw and win Amazon vouchers to the value of £250. Foster carers were asked a series of short questions about themselves, how they and the young people they look after use the Internet, what challenges they have had around online safety and what they think are the key dangers the Internet presents to young people in care. For the first time, questions about data management & security were included. Who are Guardian Saints? They are a not for profit community interest company, formed in 2014 by two parents, both with successful careers in digital asset protection for the corporate banking sector, and a foster carer. United by a deep concern about the dangers presented by our increasingly connected online world, they came together with a mission to use their skills in the online protection of the most valuable asset of all - our children.
