ParentPort is a one-stop-shop for Britain's media regulators
It was set up as a result of the Bailey Review "Letting Children be Children".
"ParentPort is run by the UK’s media regulators. We set and enforce standards across the media to protect children from inappropriate material.
Seen or heard something unsuitable for children? Maybe it was a programme on TV or online, a film, an advert, a video game or something in a magazine. At ParentPort you can find out about the standards we expect from the media, make a complaint and share your views with us."
ParentPort explains the individual regulators' functions with links to their websites, some of which offer valuable research reports.
- Advertising Standards Authority (ASA)
- Authority for Television On Demand (ATVOD)
- BBC Trust
- British Board of Film Classification (BBFC)
- Press Complaints Commission (PCC)
- Video Standards Council (VSC)
ParentPort also carries clear guidance on issues such as internet safety, cyber bullying, premium rate phone charges, inappropriate content, retail display etc. - with links to organisations which offer further help such as The UK Safer Internet Centre, ICMB and PhonePay Plus.
