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
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
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
where they can report abuse and exploitation direct to CEOP.
