Rates of online grooming and abuse are soaring, made worse by the pandemic.
Abusers can easily find children online, and what starts as a message can end in sexual abuse. As technology changes, we're giving parents advice to protect their children from growing dangers online.
We provide support on coping with online bullying, technical guidance to block abusers from contacting children, and advice on keeping children safe online. You donation can help us do everything we can to prevent online abuse from happening, and give parents the tools to keep their children safe.
My 12 year old had been playing online a lot. We found sexualised messages from strangers. They were disgusting and made me feel sick.
If only I'd know the signs, I could have stopped her from being groomed.
How your donations make an impact
Following our campaign, in 2017 it became illegal for an adult to send a child a sexual message in England and Wales.
Last year, our Helpline saw a 45% increase in contacts from people worried about children experiencing online sexual abuse.
Around 90% of our funding comes from our supporters, helping us reach children across the UK.
