Online safety

Guidance on staying safe online, social media, phones and cyberbullying.

How to keep yourself safe

It can be difficult to know what to do to keep yourself safe. There is a link to the Child Exploitation and On-line Protection agency website (CEOP) below.  CEOP provides lots of information which is designed to keep you safe on-line.  This website also has a report button if you are a victim and need help.

Here are a couple of video from CEOP which highlight the dangers of sharing information and not keeping your profiles secure when using social media.

They are hard hitting, but are designed to make you think and take steps to keep yourself safe.

Child Sexual Exploitation

CSE is in the news a lot these days, as adults are becoming fully aware of the risks to young people. Below is a very useful video about a young girl who was a victim of CSE.  It highlights the danger signs, so you can recognise if all is not right.  If you have any worries or concerns, talk to your foster carers / parents.  As Fostering People foster carers they have a really good understanding and also have access to support from the agency.
