NSPCC staff and volunteers will have a stall in the exhibition hall as Birmingham Bears kick off the 2019 Vitality Blast home campaign against Leicestershire Foxes.
The NSPCC is holding a number of workshops in the
coming months as part of ongoing work with the Edgbaston Foundation to help
keep young people safe online.
Supporters at Edgbaston on Sunday will also be
able to get online safety advice on issues such as setting parental controls,
and different types of apps and social media platforms, from O2 Gurus – tech
experts who work closely with the NSPCC.
And families will be able to test their online
knowledge with the NSPCC’s Parents vs Kids game.
NSPCC Midlands Campaigns Manager Ally Sultana
said: “It would be great if supporters could take a few minutes on Sunday to
pop and see us – and I’m sure they will find it really beneficial.
“The online world is a major part of modern life,
so it is vital that we help parents and carers understand the range of risks
that their children face online, and that we ensure young people have the tools
and knowledge to protect themselves.”
Ravinder Masih, Head of Community Engagement at
Edgbaston, said: “The relationship between the Edgbaston Foundation and the
NSPCC is an important way for us to engage with the community and with our
supporters. Helping parents and children stay safe online has become ever more
important in recent times and we are delighted that the NSPCC is joining us for
our first T20 match of the season to support us with this engagement activity.”
