Our service makes students safer online, is free for schools, caregivers and students to use and enables you to enhance your safeguarding, save time and reduce budget pressures.
TrustElevate creates benefits for stakeholders throughout the ecosystem: we enable businesses to operate in alignment with the Age Appropriate Design principles of the Children’s Code as well as the General Data Protection Regulation, or GDPR. Underpinning good practice in the delivery of appropriate content and services is knowledge of the age band to which a user belongs, e.g. less than five years old, or between 6-12 years. Equipped with this knowledge, a service can provide age-appropriate content to the user and limit interactions between children to those in similar age-bands thereby mitigating risk to both users and the business itself in avoiding non-compliance penalties. Meanwhile, you can rest assured that you have met related due diligence requirements.
Our founder, Dr Rachel O’Connell, has worked in internet safety for over 25 years and believes that when apps know the ages of their users that they can create safer spaces for children and young people.

What does TrustElevate do to protect children online?
Meral Bence, ICT Governor at Broke Hall Primary School
It was a pleasure to host TrustElevate at our school and to give parents the chance to understand more about online safety and the critically important UK Government-funded programme of work titled the Verification of Children Online (VoCO), which involved successful testing of TrustElevate’s Child Age verification and Parental Consent service. What TrustElevate has developed is a very easy to use solution to keeping children safe online, it was great to get parents directly involved and hear the feedback was amazing. It is clear that both parents and children got a lot from the session
