Help us make sure children are safer online

The internet can open up a world of possibilities to children – but we know it brings very real risks too. Young people are experiencing new forms of abuse. That's why we're asking if you'll join our fight to help keem them safe. 

We know that children feel trapped and scared about a number of things - from bullying and name calling, through to cases of being asked to send sexual images online or meet up in person. 

That’s why O2 and NSPCC have joined forces to keep children safe online. Together we have a huge opportunity to help every family in the UK and make a real difference.

But we need your support to help keep children safe online.

The growing risks for young people

Leslie's* daughters Abigail* and Kathryn* were groomed by a man who lied to them about his age and sent them explicit messages. 

Leslie said:
“When I heard about it all I was horrified. I’d found the message and questioned the girls on the Friday.  

"He’d arranged to meet the girls out of school on the Monday and take them off with him."

“I was terrified that as well as knowing what school they went to, he might know where the girls lived and come to the house. I quickly moved us away from the area to live with relatives as I didn’t know if he’d keep trying to pursue the girls. 

“I used to keep a close eye on the girls but they were both hiding it from me as this man had groomed them both. He’d also promised to buy them the world and told them not to tell anyone they were talking to him.”

Stories like Leslie’s are why O2 and NSPCC have teamed up to provide vital services so that all parents can help keep children safe, whenever and wherever they go online.

That’s why we’re asking if you can donate just £4 to help us. You can make a difference and help run our vital services – including services which will make children safer online.
