How the digital design community can help shape the ICO’s work on the Children’s Code

May 27th '21

The Children’s Code is a transformative piece of work. It will give children the confidence to explore, play and learn online safely and parents should feel assured that these online services will put their children’s best interests at heart when deciding how to use their data.


The Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) know that the aims of the design community align with this vision set out in the Children’s Code and can see design practices evolving. Designers are more conscious of societal harms and how the decisions they make impact children’s information rights and digital experiences. And the ICO want to help designers understand, implement and embed the Children’s Code into their practices, helping them to create a better digital world for children.


The ICO is currently developing practical guidance to help designers in their day-to-day work in collaboration with design studio, Big Motive. The guidance will help a range of practitioners to apply the Children’s Code; from UX and product designers to service managers and content designers.


They are keen to hear from the community throughout the process. The ICO really want this guidance to be shaped and developed by designers so that it meets their needs. There will be plenty of opportunities to give feedback on work-in-progress content, take part in workshops or to test how the guidance applies to real-life projects.
