Tackling Child Abuse (HM Government/DfE)

Tackling Child Abuse (HM Government/DfE)

The government has launched a campaign called ‘Together we can tackle child abuse’. The resources, aimed at everyone in the community, could be used with parents and include four very short videos explaining physical abuse, emotional abuse, sexual abuse, neglect and online abuse.

The simple mnemonic, ABC, is used to remind people that they should look out for changes in appearance, behaviour or communication. The webpage has a search engine to find out where to report abuse.

Online Safety

Online Safety

Whilst the world of technology can be very exciting, it can also be a very unsafe place. This is why it is important to ensure that you are aware of the risks and what can be done to ensure your child is safe when using a digital device.

Youth Produced Imagery

There have been incidents in Rochdale where primary age children have been manipulated into remove their clothing whilst on camera. Find out more here.
