Online grooming – minimising risks

As children continue to find new ways to connect with each other on a range of devices and platforms it is increasingly important to help them make smarter and safer choices about who they talk to and what they share online, especially with an increase of groomers online.

To help you give them the tools to be more critical about how they interact with others online, we’ve created a hub of expert advice to support you on this issue.
