The internet is an established fact of daily life; young people interact with it through a variety of media and devices more than any other generation. They will be carrying forwards its capacity and usage to levels that we can barely imagine at present. However, like all powerful tools, it has its dangers as well as its benefits. It is the responsibility of schools in partnership with other organisations to educate young people to protect themselves and use the internet responsibly. This is what our campaign activities will be doing.
The NCA’s CEOP Command is here to help children and young people. They are there to help if you are a young person and you or your friend (up to age 18) has been forced or tricked into taking part in sexual activity with anyone online, or in the real world. They also have advice and links to support for other online problems young people might face, such as cyberbullying and hacking. Visit their Safety Centre for advice and to report directly to CEOP, by clicking on the Click CEOP button above.
