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 Online Protection agency website (CEOP) below. CEOP provides lots of information that is designed to keep you safe online. This website also has a report button if you are a victim and need help.
Here are a couple of videos from CEOP that 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.
