We are a not for profit organisation working to protect all children in Scotland from online exploitation and abuse.
Online child exploitation is at alarmingly high levels across Scotland (30 million indecent images of children were found during a 6 week Police Scotland investigation in 2016) and in every community it frequently spreads through children being targeted on particular websites. CyberSafe Scotland works with schools, parents and communities to provide individualised advice and education based on the real current risks within their group of children.
We work with other agencies and experts who are equally passionate about preventing online exploitation to provide the highest possible level of support.
Our flagship schools programme launches in 2019 for P6 and P7 students. It is currently in pilot in schools across Aberdeen City and Shire - please subscribe to our mailing list to be kept informed about its release. In the interim we are making resources available to schools and parents through our facebook and twitter feeds and through regular information events across Aberdeen City and Shire.
We were founded a leading children's rights lawyer and are specialists in the law relating to the abuse and online exploitation of children.
We work to lobby for change to the current legislation that will protect children as well as to educate parents and children on current legislation and empower them to influence legislative developments.
