BBC launches 'Own It' site for 9-12 year olds

Thursday 7 December 2017 | 10:45 CET | News

The BBC has announced the launch of 'Own It', a new website for 9-12 year olds offering tips, advice and stories to help them get the most out out of their online time. It is the first product to launch from the corporation's GBP 34 million investment in children's content and services announced earlier in 2017. 

The 'Own It' website is designed to help young children tackle everyday challenges they will face online, as well as covering topics such as online piracy and avoiding malware. It will also provide quick lines to organisations and charities like Childline.
