Guides to help reduce sexual harm

Online Sexual Abuse

All parents and carers need to be aware of the risks of online child sexual abuse, and the scale of the issue affecting children today. Internet Watch Foundation have put together a practical guide for parents and carers, along with other helpful tips on their website. Please click here for more information.

The Marie Collins Foundation is a charity working directly with children, young people and families to enable their recovery following sexual abuse involving technology. Working with the NWG Exploitation Network, they have created this resource to produce help guides, for parents and professionals, aimed at reducing online sexual harm.

Stop Abuse Together

Child sexual abuse is a reality for thousands of children across our country, with at least one in ten estimated to experience sexual abuse before they turn 16.

But we can all play a part in protecting children and getting them the right help. That’s why it’s important to know how to spot the potential signs of child sexual abuse and where to go for support. The following goverment website brings together advice and resources to help you keep the children in your life safe: stopabusetogether.campaign.gov.uk
