Absafe, a prominent non-profit organisation dedicated to promoting safety and well-being, has recently received funding from the Communities Mental Health and Wellbeing Fund to continue their groundbreaking project; Cyber Resilience for Adults. This initiative aims to equip people with the knowledge and skills needed to navigate the digital realm safely, fostering a sense of security and well-being in an ever-evolving online landscape.

The funding from the Communities Mental Health and Wellbeing Fund underscores the critical role of cyber resilience in today's society. With the internet playing an increasingly central role in our lives, the need for individuals to be well-informed about cybersecurity has never been greater. Absafe recognises this need and is committed to addressing it.

The primary objective of this project is to empower adults with the necessary tools to enhance their cyber resilience. In a world where online threats and vulnerabilities are constantly evolving, being informed and prepared is crucial. Absafe's initiative seeks to provide comprehensive training and resources that will enable adults to use the internet safely, protecting their personal information and privacy while staying connected.

As Louise, the CEO of Absafe, notes, "Our mission has always been centred around safety and well-being. In today's digital age, cybersecurity is an integral part of staying safe and mentally well. We are grateful for the support from the Communities Mental Health and Wellbeing Fund, which allows us to extend our efforts into the realm of cyber resilience."

The project will encompass a range of activities and resources aimed at educating adults about cybersecurity best practices. Participants will have the opportunity to learn about topics such as secure password management, identifying phishing attempts, safeguarding personal information, and understanding online privacy settings.

By equipping people with these essential skills, Absafe aims to foster a sense of confidence and security in the digital world. Being aware of potential risks and knowing how to mitigate them can significantly reduce the stress and anxiety that can arise from online interactions.

The Communities Mental Health and Wellbeing Fund's support for this project reflects the recognition of the profound impact that cyber resilience can have on individuals' mental well-being. As society continues to embrace the digital age, the ability to navigate the online landscape safely becomes increasingly vital.

Absafe is committed to making a positive difference in the lives of their community by providing them with the knowledge and tools they need to thrive in the digital world securely. Through this project, they aim to create a community of digitally resilient individuals who can use the internet safely while preserving their mental well-being.
