Last year Police Scotland delivered a CSE Child Sexual Abuse Campaign, #notmyfriend. The campaign was a huge success with a sevenfold increase in the number of individuals being directed to the Stop It Now! website page.
The key aims of the campaign are to identify and deter perpetrators or potential perpetrators who currently pose a risk to children online. Intervention will play a key part, challenging their behaviour, with clear messaging that there is no place for them to hide, building on their fear of being caught. There will be clear direction to the support that is accessible to them from our campaign partner, Stop It Now!
Although the campaign is specific on targeting perpetrators of online child grooming as well as potential perpetrators, Police Scotland continues to work with partners and stakeholders to educate children and their parents on online safety as well as encourage them to report such offences. Police Scotland is committed to using the latest tactics available to them to detect online child abuse offences.
Happy New Year!
Please have a look at this excellent article including funny videos by the Mental Health Foundation.

Sleep Scotland’s free Sleep Support Line provides on-the-spot guidance to parents and guardians struggling with their children’s and teenagers’ sleep problems. This includes, but is not limited to, mainstream, or typically developing, children and teenagers, who previously could not access our services. The line gives all families across Scotland access to free support from Sleep Scotland’s experienced sleep counsellors, thanks to a grant from The Big Lottery Fund Scotland. Parents and carers will be able to seek tailored advice on sleep for their children, from sleepless toddlers to teenagers dealing with exam-stress and the distractions of social media.
