New parents and carers website – Fantastic website and very easy to use

We’re proud to announce that a Beta version of our new website for parents and carers is now live at www.thinkuknow.co.uk/parents. The new site offers a completely refreshed suite of articles and guidance on all aspects of child internet safety.  Please take a moment to give us some feedback by taking a look around the new site and then completing the user survey (this appears as a pop up when you visit).  Your comments and ideas will help us shape the final content and improve our resources and support to families.

 

Families can visit www.thinkuknow.co.uk/parents to access advice and support on how to keep children safe from sexual abuse, both online and off. Articles provide guidance on topics as diverse as: challenging harmful sexual attitudes and promoting positive behaviours; helping a child with autism negotiate life online; supporting a child who has been sexually abused; and dealing with a range of online issues such as sending nude selfies and viewing pornography. Users will find films, downloadable guides and useful links to support organisations. Families can also use the website to access the CEOP Safety Centre (www.ceop.police.uk/safety-centre) where they can report abuse and exploitation direct to CEOP.

Please do start using the new site in your work with families now, by:

·         Signposting parents and carers to the new site in any training or advice sessions you offer

·         Being familiar with the site yourself, so you are able to give accurate information about the content to schools, families and other agencies

Look out for information from Cheshire Police Liz Stanton’s Safer Schools & Young person’s Partnership News each month.
