Working with parents & carers

We can offer presentations for adults on how to keep children safe in the ‘real world’ and when using the Internet. These are usually delivered to groups of adults - ideally a minimum of 10 per group - and can be organised by schools, children's centres community and faith groups.

Parents Protect! Parent Workshops

In recent times we have come to understand that children are more likely to be sexually abused by people they know than by strangers. These are not the ‘monsters’ often portrayed by the media, but familiar and trusted adults, which can make disclosure far more difficult. It is vital that parents, carers and other adults are equipped with sound information to help them protect their children.

These sessions include information on:

  • What is child sexual abuse
  • Who are the abusers
  • Offender behaviour and grooming
  • How offenders are managed in the community
  • Positive steps for parents to take
  • Stop it Now! Helpline and further support

Internet Safety - Parent Workshops

Barely a day goes by when we don’t hear about a child being harmed through their use of the Internet. Many parents feel out of their depth or look to technical safeguards such as filtering and blocking software to help protect their children. But these solutions can only ever deal with part of the problem and parents, whatever their technical ability, need to make time to understand the risks and get practical non-technical advice on steps they can take to keep their children safe.

The aims for this training are:

  • To raise awareness of risk factors associated with Internet use
  • To increase knowledge around MSN, SMS, Chat Rooms, Blogging and peer-to-peer communication
  • To understand grooming behaviours of abusers in the virtual world
  • To consider safety strategies aimed at minimising risk

And includes:

  • Types of technology
  • Risks
  • Social networking
  • Gaming
  • Grooming
  • Minimising risk and positive preventative actions
  • Further support
