Safer Internet Day 2022

Published: 09 February 2022

Grooming is where a person, or group of people, actively seek out vulnerable young people to build a relationship with them, and tricks or pressures them to do something sexual.  This could be through using gifts or blackmail to achieve their goals.

If you or someone you know are worried they might be being groomed please go to this website and report it.
