Barnardo's Be Safe Guide

As parents and carers, we all want the very best for our children and strive to protect them from people and places that put them in danger. Sadly, sexual exploitation affects thousands of children every year, and with technology now such a big part of our day-to-day lives, children are vulnerable in ways they have never been before.

Barnardo's has produced a guid for parents and carers designed to help you protect your child against these dangers – giving you clear, practical and useable advice.  The  guide can be downloaded from:
