Support they are able to offer, can be found here. If you are worried about any aspect of your child’s development, please get in touch.

You may also like to visit the ThinkUKnow site.  ThinkUKnow is an education programme from the National Crime Agency’s CEOP Command.  Since 2006, ThinkUKnow has been keeping children and young people safe by providing education about sexual abuse and sexual exploitation. The CEOP Education team is a part of the National Crime Agency and we run an education programme which aims to reduce the vulnerability of children and young people to online sexual abuse. We provide training, resources and information for children and young people aged 4 - 18, their families and professionals who work with them.   

The programme includes films, animations, websites, presentations and lesson plans to enable professionals to explore difficult and sensitive issues safely with children and young people. The animations/film resources are accompanied by toolkits and delivery guidance documents to help professionals explore their themes with children and young people.
