MP Sarah Champion to launch online child protection resource for parents and professionals today

MP SARAH Champion will today (Tuesday) officially launch a new website which aims to be a one-stop site for support on how to talk to children about healthy relationships and online safety.

The Dare2Care website contains information on relationship education, sexting, pornography, online abuse, relationship violence and female genital mutilation. 

The Dare2Care campaign began in January 2016 and brings together charities, parents, professionals, academics and young people who campaign against child abuse and violence in young people’s relationships and focus on prevention. 

Ms Champion said: “I launched the Dare2Care campaign to facilitate debate about how we can challenge child abuse, provide information, raise awareness and change policy.  

“Dare2Care aims to ensure that every child is safe from abuse and that the normalisation of violence in young people’s relationships is challenged. 

“The campaign has already achieved success, with the Government announcing plans to introduce relationships education for all children from key stage one, but there is still much to do.

“Working with leading charities, organisations and individuals, I have gathered information and resources for parents and professionals together to create this website.”

At the website launch this afternoon in the House of Commons, the Rotherham MP will speak alongside a parent who has been affected by child abuse, charity workers and professionals.
