CEOP update

CEOP update

"For many of you, the summer break has already started. For some children and young people, this means they may not have a trusted adult they can go to for support, and to report concerns about online sexual abuse. Children and young people can continue to report concerns to The Child Exploitation & Online Protection Centre (CEOP) 's safety centre over the summer break. If they're worried about online sexual abuse or the way someone has been communicating with them online, they can let CEOP know and speak to one of our child protection advisers. We've also got lots of information and advice on our parents and carers website to help keep their children safer online over the holiday such as: Are you worried about something which has happened online? Reporting to social media sites, & 7 questions parents ask about nude selfies" https://www.ceop.police.uk/safety-centre/

Gender diversity

"In response to the increasing awareness of gender diversity, the Trustees recently participated in a facilitated conversation about gender identity. This was a fascinating and thought provoking session which enabled a discussion of what gender identity means, the extent to which The Magdalene Group currently can, or should aim to meet existing needs and how this may affect our services in the future. The session had previously been run for the staff team who brought to it their practical experience of current working and the Trustees conversation engendered a common understanding of the strategic issues for The Magdalene Group going forward. " Lucy Macleod, Trustee
