With the public purse feeling the strain, and those who deliver children’s services under pressure to do more with less, Action for Children is looking at new ways to offer support and share expertise.
The children’s charity is at the forefront of developing sustainable methods for supporting the UK’s most vulnerable.
Action for Children has launched webinars to tackle and discuss issues that affect children in the UK today and its upcoming session, scheduled on Wednesday, 11December, will focus on the relationship between young people and social media.
Shaun Kelly, head of safeguarding at Action for Children, and Marie Cooney, from the Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre (CEOP) will lead the discussion.
Action for Children is striving to help understanding of how children are using social media and what they are doing with it. The webinar will also look into whether worries are misplaced and what can be done to help people feel safe online.
Shaun Kelly says: “Social networking provides young people with great opportunities however it does undoubtedly carry risks. This webinar looks to help professionals guide young people through the use of social media.
“Those working in children’s services will discover how they can use social networking to their advantage to actively engage with children, learn how to support children using social networks, discover best practice and have questions answered.”
