Netsafe has been operating for 25 years with a mission to keep Kiwi’s safe online and help those who have experienced online harm.
Netsafe is a national not-for-profit organisation that has been operating for 25 years with a mission to keep New Zealander's safe online.
In today’s increasingly digital world, this mission has never been more important, with more and more New Zealanders falling victim to scams, bullying, child grooming, impersonation, and threatening behaviour via social media and other channels. Every day the news brings us stories of online incidents that have led to adverse outcomes for the victims, including financial loss, mental health impact and even more serious implications.
In each of these instances, Netsafe is there to help and is often the first point of contact for those who have suffered online harm. The free online harm helpline provides confidential advice and support, including a dispute resolution service to the people of Aotearoa seven days a week. On average we receive and assist with 28,000 reports of harm each year.
In addition, each year Netsafe runs sessions with schools and community groups nationwide providing important online safety advice and practical resources.
Our work is wide-reaching, and the need is high. With your support, we can help more New Zealanders and ensure a safe online experience for all.
Netsafe is New Zealand's trusted online safety organisation and not-for-profit, with a 25-year history of preventing and addressing online harm.
