First look at some of our new resources! 

At Digital Families 2019, NCA-CEOP will be offering a sneak preview of some new resources focused on healthy and unhealthy behaviours in relationships, with a focus on image sharing and tackling harmful norms within peer groups.

These new resources will explore the social and cultural context of young people's experiences of navigating relationships in an online world, and seek to give them early opportunities to explore and develop their values, not only individually but also through discussion with peers.

The aim is to build:

  • Their resilience against pressure;
  • Their ability to empathise;
  • Their understanding of safe, positive ways to challenge toxic norms and take a positive bystander role if they and their peers encounter challenges later on. 

We are very excited to show you and hope you can join us!
