TALK CHECKLIST TO HELP KEEP YOUR CHILD SAFE ONLINE

Follow the TALK checklist to help keep your child safe online (Internet Watch Foundation)

The Internet Watch Foundation (IWF) tells us that ‘since the start of the pandemic, the amount of ‘self-generated’ child abuse imagery has increased dramatically. In 2020, the IWF confirmed 68,000 cases of such imagery, a rise of 77% on the year before. It accounts for nearly half (44%) the imagery we took action on last year. In 80% of these cases, the victims were 11- to 13-year-old girls.’

The IWF has created a resource to help parents and carers understand the risks of ‘self-generated child sexual abuse imagery’ using the acronym ‘TALK’.  To find out more, go to: https://talk.iwf.org.uk/

There is a new dedicated NSPCC Helpline to provide appropriate support and advice for both children and adults who are potential victims of sexual abuse in schools. It includes how to contact the police and report crimes.
The helpline will also provide support to parents and professionals too.
