Get Safe Online launches new online safety hotline for parents

Recent events have made online safety for children more important than ever, but when parents feel less technically savvy than their kids it can be difficult for parents to manage online risks and feel confident when speaking to their kids about how to keep safe online. For further details go to www.getsafeonline.org.

The Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre (CEOP) is dedicated to tackling the sexual abuse and exploitation of children and young people. CEOP is here to help young people (up to age 18) who have been forced or tricked into taking part in sexual activity with anyone online or in the real world. For information, advice and to report concerns directly to CEOP, visit the Safety Centre www.ceop.police.uk/safety-centre.
