Internet safety sessions for parents

Lothian and Borders Police are launching a series of free lunch and learn sessions for parents on keeping their child safe when using the internet. 

Do you wonder whether what your child is doing online is safe?  Or are you worried about the impact of cyber bullying? This event is designed to make online parenting simple and help young people stay safe.

The lectures have been developed in line with guidance from the Child Exploitation and Online Protection (CEOP) centre to raise parent awareness, which is crucial to the success of the CEOP centre in tackling the sexual abuse of children and young people. The talks will be delivered by local Integration officers.

Please bring your own lunch along to this hour-long session.

The sessions will take place between 12.30pm and 1.30pm in the following locations:

APRIL 17: Abbey Row Community Centre, Kelso
