Ensuring children are safe online and preventing technology-assisted child sexual abuse
InCtrl is a service that is designed to help keep children aged 9- to 13-years-old safe online to prevent technology-assisted child sexual abuse (TA-CSA). We support children and young people to build digital resilience by helping them recognise the risks they encounter online, promoting their emotional wellbeing and strengthening the supports around them.
The programme is tailored to the individual needs of children and young people. We encourage parents and carers to get involved in the work we do so that we can help them support and protect their child from technology-assisted child sexual abuse.
We have adapted our programme so that we can continue to deliver it during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. Children and their parents or carers can now get one-to-one support from our team of practitioners through the virtual programme. The virtual offer consists of key components of the original programme but we have made adjustments based on the learning from our most recent feasibility study.
