The internet has changed in many ways since it first became publicly accessible in the 1990s, and one of the most controversial developments is the growth of the so-called “Dark Web.”
Our #LiveSkills resource package has been developed using the most up to date intelligence received into the CEOP command and highlight the type of tactics offenders' use on live streaming platforms. They also aim to address the more deep rooted issues that might make children and young people particularily vulnerable online, such as low confidence and self-esteem. The #LiveSkills series is aimed and 8-11 year olds, 11-13 + and includes a presentation that can be used with parents and carers, as well as a factsheet to help boost professionals in their knowledge of Live streaming.DOWNLOAD #LIVESKILLS ACTIVITIES
