The below link may assist officers if dealing with any concerned parents/carer’s/guardians in relation to any nude images of their children or children in their care that may have somehow been shared online. A number of parents/carers do not want to pursue complaints and are keen just to get the image taken down – so by following this link, those concerned can then progress getting the image removed.

Childnet has lots of useful articles and advice such as screen time and we would encourage you to sign up to their newsletter and visit their pages occasionally for hot topic discussion which responds to new trends.
