Summary

The team behind DigiSafe aims to give young people with special needs equal access to the digital world as other people.
The app helps them to:

  • Recognise potential challenges, for example when shopping over the internet or using social media
  • Learn how to overcome common challenges
  • Learn how to protect their personal information
  • Gain confidence and familiarity with digital channels and tools. 

It includes a `seek help’ option which can connect them with a volunteer for guidance over Skype. 
The app was designed by a Danish advocacy and support organisation for people with special needs, Ligevaerd (Equality).
