About us

With world-leading insights and various innovative and practical projects, we have an array of responses to the issues of the digital age. The internet amplifies many of the problems of young people – so someone who is anorexic may well be fuelling their behaviour online. The internet also gives young people new forms of expression, such as sexting. We believe these are social problems and, while technical tools have their part to play, they are not really the solution. Parents are right to feel uneasy at the pace of change. The internet underpins everything we do and it alters us. But it is also a huge opportunity and our products help young people and their parents avoid the pitfalls and make the most of the digital world.

What we do

We help families deal with the many difficulties that are thrown up by the pace of technological change, providing them with the knowledge to make the most of the digital age, creatively and confidently. We run training and events, produce fantastic content for parents, offer memberships with great benefits for schools and individuals, and we create projects for and with some of the leading companies in the world.

Our people

We’re a small, talented, forward-thinking team from a range of backgrounds - parenting organisations, children’s charities and tech companies. We’re experts on parenting and families, backed up by years of combined professional experience and research.
