Online Safety
Due to the current situation we know many young people are spending more time online. As a result of this, in Birmingham there has been an increase in grooming, exploitation and online abuse. It is often easier for an offender to gain access to a child one-to-one online rather than offline. Please see the information below to help keep your child safe online.
