Radicalisation is a complex issue that needs to be tackled head on, says CEO Peter Wanless
Today, we'll be standing alongside government ministers at Bethnal Green Academy in East London as a new initiative is launched to help protect children from extremists grooming children to be sympathetic to terrorism.
Radicalisation has become one of this century's most pressing child protection issues, and not one that's likely to go away. In recent weeks, ChildLine has carried out more than 260 counselling sessions with children disturbed by the Paris terrorist attacks of last November. And that's why it's never been more important to address the issue.
NSPCC Chief Executive, Peter Wanless will explain how extremists used similar methods to online paedophiles to radicalise children.
