                     New parents and carers website
We're proud to announce that a Beta version of our new website for parents and carers is now live at
www.thinkuknow.co.uk/parents. The new site offers a completely refreshed suite of articles and guidance on all aspects of child internet safety.
Please take a moment to give us some feedback by taking a look around the new site and then completing the user survey (this appears as a pop up when you visit). Your comments and ideas will help us shape the final content and improve our resources and support to families.
Families can visit
www.thinkuknow.co.uk/parents to access advice and support on how to keep children safe from sexual abuse, both online and off. Articles provide guidance on topics as diverse as: challenging harmful sexual attitudes and promoting positive behaviours; helping a child with autism negotiate life online; supporting a child who has been sexually abused; and dealing with a range of online issues such as sending nude selfies and viewing pornography. Users will find films, downloadable guides and useful links to support organisations.
Families can also use the website to access the CEOP Safety Centre
(www.ceop.police.uk/safety-centre) where they can report abuse and exploitation direct to CEOP.

Watch this space for new resources  on the new website, which we'll be publishing early in the New Year.
Cybercrime: Preventing young people from getting involve
The National Crime Agency (NCA) has launched a public awareness campaign to highlight the increasing number of young people engaging in cybercrime.
The #CyberChoices campaign targets parents of 12-15 year olds who may be involved in hacking or other kinds of online crime without their parents' knowledge. The campaign, also aimed at professionals who work with children and young people, highlights the range of criminal activities that children may be involved in, how to spot signs of potential problems, what the consequences could be and importantly, signposts better ways for young people to use their technical skills.
For further information about cybercrime, and to watch the short film produced for the campaign, visit
For advice from the NCA on how to help young people avoid the risks of getting involved in cybercrime, and how to work with parents and carers on this issue visit:

With best wishes from us all in the CEOP Education Team
