Snapchat concern

As parents/carers your children may use Snapchat. Please take the time to read this BBC article regarding a 14year old boy who responded to an advert on Snapchat regarding cash in hand work and within 80 minutes was picked up by a gang and groomed into County Lines drug dealing.

Articles such as this are a great way to discuss online safety, social media and check your child’s phone.
