Dear parents

It seems that the problem of keeping our kids safe is an every increasing one.

Statistics are showing us every year that child abuse is on the rise.

Everyday, innocent children are being hurt. It is our worst nightmare to think that this could happen to our children.

There is a whole new world for kids on the internet. If your child is not "online" already, he or she may soon be joining the millions of children who are.
(Note - while not part of the KidsKeepSafe project, the Internet Safety Group have lots of information about safety while online. Visit their website here).

Statistics also show us that 95% of children who are abused, are abused by someone they know and trust.

As a concerned parent, I encourage you to explore this website and then help your children to find their way around it. Discuss each point with them. Present them with different scenarios and talk through how they should respond.

There is no doubt that if children practice to keep themselves safe, they are much more likely to do so in a real situation.

We have a set of cards that children love to get that are an empowering tool to help your children keep themselves safe. Please email us so we can send you a free set. We are happy to send you more than one set, however, there will be a charge if you want more than one set ($5 plus postage). Any donations would be appreciated.

Email David Goodwin for your set. Please note our privacy policy.
