Internet Matters

If you are a parent or carer, do check out the not-for-profit website Internet Matters.  This is an excellent resource aimed to support parents and carers in keeping their children and young people safe on line. It coves a wide raise of issues that could be affecting your children from cyber bullying to on-line grooming.  There is guidance on how to discuss the safe use of social media with young people and also briefings to help parents get to grips with all the different communication routes now available.  If you don’t know much about SnapChat, the latest apps, or you are concerned about what your child could be exposing themselves to, this website is a good starting point for gaining confidence in parenting in a digital age.  Check out @RedbridgeLSCB on Twitter for information about other free on-line resources for parents and carers.

Are you a child or young person?

If something is worrying you or making you scared and you’re not sure if it is abuse, it is important to talk to someone you trust and we can help.

Children and young people may be hurt by an adult or another young person in many ways. Abuse can be any of the following:

  • Physical Abuse
  • Emotional Abuse
  • Sexual Abuse
  • Neglect


Are you a parent or carer?

We all have a personal responsibility to notice when a child or young person may be being abused and pass our concerns to someone who can act to protect them.

This part of the website is for parents, carers, anyone with parental responsibility, relatives, friends and neighbours who need information or advice.
