Online Addiction Hub

Educating – Helping – Lobbying for Change

About Us

The Online Addiction Hub was set up in response to the every increasing problems experienced by young people when they become addicted to their computer, phone or gaming machine.

It is estimated that more than 50% of all young people spend more than 4 hours per day online and the average 15 year old touches their phone over 2,000 time per day!

This causes addiction, anxiety, depression and lack of self-esteem.

What We Do

We provide help and advice to young people and parents who need help with identifying and overcoming addiction to technology.

We also provide educational material to schools to aid them with the education of young people and make them aware of the dangers of spending too much time online. We also encourage leading players in the industry to monitor how long their users spend online and inform people of the help available to young users spending too long on their sites.

Get Involved

Your generosity makes our work possible. Whether you contribute financially or as advocate for good, you make a real and lasting difference in people’s lives.

A small donation goes a long way, as does promoting our work on your website, Facebook page or Twitter feed.

It is only by increasing awareness of this problem that we can persuade industry, schools and parents to take the appropriate action.

Online Addiction
Help others by giving

Every person whose life is improved or saved, stems from an act of generosity that’s purely voluntary. That’s why donating is so extraordinary when you do it.
