CYBER SAFETY

The AFL is committed to ensuring safe, welcoming and inclusive environments for all people involved in Australian Football.

To achieve this, the AFL will adopt a specific and consistent approach to a range of social issues, underpinned by education, awareness – raising activities, support services, social responsibilities, research and evaluation and compliance. 

THE ISSUE

Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat, YouTube, Twitter etc, have become a way of life for many people. These platforms are an integral part of many people’s lives, and allow people to connect, communicate and share their lives online. However, if used inappropriately, these platforms can cause serious problems.
