We're calling on Prime Minister Boris Johnson to prioritise online safety and bring in laws that deliver a change in protection against abuse
A new NSPCC survey has revealed for the first time the extent of grooming and inappropriate behaviour on the most popular social networking sites.
- 1 in 25 11-17 year olds have sent, received or been asked to send sexual content to an adult.
- Young people who used Snapchat, Facebook, Twitter and Twitch were the most likely to report experiencing grooming activity1.
We're concerned about the extent to which young people are sharing sexual images, leaving them more vulnerable to grooming and exploitation. Offenders are then using these images to blackmail children to generate more.
Following the release of the Online Harms White Paper earlier this year, our #WildWestWeb campaign calls on Prime Minister Boris Johnson to keep the Government's promise and force tech firms to exercise a duty of care to children on their platforms.
