Guides and support
It is really important that we give the right message to our children and young people about how we can stay safe whilst they access all forms of social media and technology.
Below are some suggestions of services and agencies that can provide this support and further information.
For practical support on privacy settings, parental controls and more call the NSPCC online safety helpline on 0808 800 5000.
CEOP (The Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre) delivers a multi-agency service dedicated to tackling the abuse and exploitation of children in the real and ‘e’ world. Often it is referred to as an online 999. By clicking on the button, young people and parents can get advice on a range of issues such as viruses, hacking and dealing with bullying online.
