Adults worried about children being radicalised and the impact of terrorism can call the NSPCC helpline for advice
The launch of our free, 24-hour service comes after recent terrorist attacks which have highlighted the growing problem of individuals being influenced by extremism.
The NSPCC helpline will provide support to adults who have concerns about children and young people being radicalised or who need advice on how to talk to their children about issues related to terrorism.
NSPCC helpline practitioners have been trained to spot the warning signs of radicalisation so they can advise adults who are worried about a child being groomed.
The training, provided by experts in the field, included how recruiters might befriend vulnerable young people, feed them ideologies and – in the worst case scenario - persuade them to commit terrorist attacks.
