Visa Europe is a founding partner of the CEOP Command. Through funding, intelligence and expertise they have supported work since 2006. In more recent years they have proactively extended their work to build the capacity of a wide variety of professionals to help the combating child exploitation in the UK and across Europe.
With Visa Europe’s support, in 2011, CEOP launched ‘The Families Programme’ which focuses on demystifying the online technologies used by children, as well as providing families with practical guidance on how to stay safe online.
This valuable and much-needed project is providing welcome resources for parents and carers and helping to bridge the gap in their knowledge of the online world and its potential risks. The families programme grows year on year and to date has engaged with over 1 million parents and carers face to face.
