Internet Safety

With over 91% of children living in a household with access to the internet, children have never been more accessible to offenders online (CEOP; 2015).  It is everyone’s responsibility to educate young people to the risks, to identify when they may be being harmed and to intervene to protect our children and young people when necessary.
