Age Appropriate Content

There are many different online resources to find out more information on sexual violence. The most useful is found at Child Exploitation & Online Protection Command or CEOP for short. CEOP is part of the UK government approach to deal with sexual crime.

We have selected a variety of videos that you may want to watch in order to gain a better understanding of sexual abuse. They listed in age order starting with videos for Under 5’s. To help provide the appropriate information for children and young people and their parents/carers.

They highlight different forms of sexual abuse and raise awareness of danger signs whilst also providing information on the different support services out there for children & young people.
