CEOP command has launched a campaign to help keep children safe online during the coronavirus pandemic. The #OnlineSafetyAtHome campaign contains home activity packs with 15-minute activities for parents and carers to do with their children using CEOP’s Thinkuknow educational resources. New activities will be launched fortnightly. The NCA has warned of a spike in online child sex offending during the coronavirus crisis, with latest figures indicating that there are at least 300,000 people in the UK posing a sexual threat to children. An article in the Guardian reports on NSPCC concerns that a shortage of moderators who combat sexual abuse online combined with children spending more time on the internet at home has created a “perfect storm” for abusers to take advantage of the pandemic.
