Online gaming has seen a massive increase in popularity with children over the COVID-19 pandemic. This is due to more time spent at home and restrictions on physical social contact. West Sussex County Council’s partners Get Safe Online are offering a series of webinars that they are hosting to support their Gaming4Good campaign in June. These webinars are for parents and guardians and will highlight key issues surrounding gaming, as well as suggest how they can ensure their children are Gaming4Good.

Parents and carers are very welcome to join one of the free Gaming4Good webinars where they can hear from a panel of experts in family gaming who will discuss psychology, gaming risk and finance, how to approach your children’s gaming to help them get the most out of it… and avoid the pitfalls. There will also be a Q&A session, where parent/carers will have the opportunity to ask any burning questions they may have.

There are three one-hour webinars on offer, each of which will be tailored specifically for parents of children of different age groups.

Thursday 17th June 10:00 – 11:00: Parents and guardians with children 2–12 years

Thursday 24th June 10:00 – 11:00: Parents and guardians with children aged 12–15 years

Wednesday 30th June 10:00 -11:00: parents and guardians with children aged 15–18 years
