Internet child safety council to launchNews brought to you by Skint Tariffs, providers of cheap broadband deals.
Children are set to get greater levels of protection when they go online with both broadband and dial-up access when the UK Council for Child Internet Safety launches later this year.
The council, which will include stakeholders such as charities and industry, will advise the government as it develops strategy for e-safety.
Minister for children Kevin Brennan announced the launch, which will be six months ahead of schedule.
He said: "All children deserve to take advantage of opportunities new technologies bring but parents have told us that they want support from the Government to help make sure these opportunities are beneficial to their children's development without causing harm.
"We are inviting experts within industry and children's charities to come forward and provide their expertise and advice by joining the UK Council on Child Internet Safety. By developing an e-safety strategy together, we can help children to learn and play safe online whilst at the same time supporting parents to manage new pressures they face in a modern technological world."
