The Internet & Social Media

Internet safety is a growing issue as more and more young people have access to online services.

WISH are committed to protecting young people from sexual exploitation, online grooming and cyber bullying. We have seen a steady increase in reported sexual abuse which has started online through social networking sites (Facebook, Twitter), mobiles, gaming, chat rooms (Omegle), IM or other e-messaging services.

Online protection is now a global challenge! The effects of sharing personal information or indecent pictures online can be long-term.
