Together, we are
We all have our part to play in making the online environment a safer, better place for young explorers.
For children growing up, the online environment plays a significant part in their lives. It’s a place for them to enhance their learning, connect with new ideas and discover more about the world around them. That’s why it’s so important we help children to become confident and capable explorers, so they can safely make the most of all the wonderful benefits technology has to offer. i-vengers is a fully funded initiative through Derbyshire Police & Crime Commissioner and Derbyshire County Council, endorsed by the Derbyshire and Derby City Safeguarding Children Partnership.
Our work across schools and communities aims to unite these ideals, equipping children, teachers, key workers and parents with essential knowledge and skillsets, raising awareness and standards in online environment safety. Through collaborative learning, training, and discussions about the good and bad elements of digital technologies, we can not only help safeguard children of all ages, from pre-schoolers right through to higher education, but also empower them to make smarter and safer choices on their own.
Engage. Educate. Empower.
We believe learning should be fun, interactive and memorable. By challenging the way people think about being online, creating perspective in an open and enlightening way, we can equip everyone with the skills to make the online world a safer place, raising awareness and standards in online safety across entire communities.
A little bit of background…
Every hero deserves an origin story. Ours begins with Traci Good.
The i-vengers initiative was founded in late 2019 by Traci Good. Having worked as a family resource worker for many years, Traci wanted to use her knowledge and expertise not only to keep children safe in the online environment but also help them flourish.
Today, Traci works with schools, colleges, law enforcement and key workers across various sectors, raising awareness and standards in online child safety. In addition to being a Founding member of the Association of Adult and Child Online Safety Specialists, she is also a member of the UK Council for Internet Safety, and a qualified assessor for the 360 Online Safety Mark.
In 2020, Traci was shortlisted in the East Midlands Chamber of Commerce Enterprising Women Awards for ‘Outstanding contributions to Work in STEM’.
After seeing traditional safeguarding concerns shift online, we wanted to combine our industry expertise and passion for helping young people, ensuring they stay safe in an ever-changing digital age.
