Online Safety

****PARENTS/CARERS****

We have received the information contained here, from Leeds Prevent, to assist you in keeping your children safe online. We feel that with the current lockdown situation the links and information is important to share as we understand a lot of our children spend time online, more so with the restrictions we have in place.

Whilst online exploitation is rare, if we ensure that our children are given the correct information and resources to speak out we can keep them safe from any harm online.

Information About Domestic Violence.

Domestic Violence is a crime.

You have the right to live your life free from fear, violence and abuse. You may feel humiliated, frightened, ashamed or alone – but YOU ARE NOT TO BLAME.   Domestic Violence is very common – it can happen to anyone, regardless of age, class, disability, race, sexuality or lifestyle.

Domestic violence can involve physical, emotional and financial abuse, usually by a man towards a woman.  You and your children may be abused by a partner, ex-partner or family member. Abuse is rarely a one-off event – it tends to get worse over time, but there is help available.

If you would like advice, information, somewhere safe to stay, or simply want someone to listen, you can ring the National Domestic Violence Helpline – 0808 2000 247 – or speak to the Mentors if you prefer.
