Tips, advice, guides and resources to help keep your child safe online

As part of our #WakeUpWednesday campaign, this week we’ve created a free guide for parents & carers to help them understand the risks young people face when ‘sexting’.

Often referred to as the ‘new flirting for children’, sexting is the act of sending sexually explicit messages, images or videos over a digital device. It’s important that parents understand the risks and legalities around sexting to ensure that their children know how to protect themselves from harm. This free guide for parents & carers covers what they need to know to help keep their children safe, including the law, information about what to do if an indecent image/video has been shared, and more.

Please help us spread the message by sharing this guide for parents & carers on:
