The National Crime Agency’s CEOP Command has developed Thinkuknow, an education programme providing education about sex, relationships and the internet to reduce children and young people’s vulnerability to sexual abuse and exploitation.
Thinkuknow provides a website for parents and carers, supporting them in understanding and responding to the risks their children may face as they grow. The site covers a broad range of issues from online safety and sexting. Go to www.thinkuknow.co.uk/parents
