Keeping Your Under 5 Safe OnlineA new educational resource has been developed by the National Crime Agency (NCA) to help keep young people safe from online sexual abuse and exploitation. The resource, to be used by practitioners, teachers and parents with four to seven year olds, is based upon a three-episode animation series called Jessie and Friends. There are also accompanying storybooks available to download. The resource is designed to each children to recognize manipulative strategies in online chat like those typically used by offenders to groom children. It is hoped the resource will provide education to young children before they begin to encounter such risks online, making them less likely to become victims and/or be targeted by high-risk offenders.
