The NSPCC is one of the leading children’s charities fighting to end child abuse in the UK, Channel Islands and Isle of Man, offering a range of services and resources on various subjects including child sexual abuse, neglect and online safety.

 

We all know the internet is amazing. Children can play, learn, create and connect – opening up a whole world of exciting possibilities. But with the digital world changing all the time, how can you make sure your child’s staying safe?

 

That’s where you come in! We would like invite to a local focus group to share your views and test the information contained in the new NSPCC guidance for workers in faith-based organisations who use digital technology, the internet and social media in their work with children and young people.

 

We think it is essential we gather a wide range of views and experiences from the heart of the community and we need your help to make this happen!

 

We would like to hear from you if you are a:
·     Working (paid or voluntary) with children in a faith-based organisations
·     Professional working to support safeguarding in faith- communities
·     Parent with a child engaged in faith-based organisational activities

 

Your responses will directly influence the content of the guidance as contribute to:
·     Raising awareness of online safety for children
·     Increasing understanding of safe and unsafe practice when using digital technology
·     Sharing knowledge to help improve the safeguarding of children who engage in faith-based/youth work activities.
