Self-generated child sexual abuse awareness campaign

Last updated by Stephanie.Rosser@essex.gov.uk on Tuesday, September 19, 2023

 

New campaign aims to empower young people, and warn their parents and carers about the risks posed by online predators targeting children. 

 

Young people are increasingly being groomed by online predators to create sexually explicit images and videos.

 

As part of the campaign, parents are encouraged to T.A.L.K to their children about the dangers.

 

  • Talk to your child about online sexual abuse. Start the conversation – and listen to their concerns.
  • Agree ground rules about the way you use technology as a family.
  • Learn about the platforms and apps your child loves. Take an interest in their online life.
  • Know how to use tools, apps and settings that can help to keep your child safe online.
