Parents in Sutton are being invited to the borough’s first-ever Community Safety Presentations to help children and young people stay safe on the internet.
Two free hour-long sessions have been arranged at the Sutton Life Centre in October focusing on ‘sexting’ – the sending and passing on of explicit texts, images and video via mobile phone and the internet.
Parents will hear from two guest speakers who are specialists in protecting children from harm. In addition, parents will be able to raise any issues or questions in person with Sutton’s police officers, who work with teachers and pupils at Sutton’s secondary schools, as well as the Council’s e-safety officer, who gives talks about online safety at junior and secondary schools in the borough.
The Community Safety Presentations have been arranged by the Safer Sutton Partnership Service, which is a joint team of police and council officers based at Sutton Police station, who manage the borough’s community safety services.
The initiative is being supported by the Local Safeguarding Children Board, which comprises specialists from a number of organisations and leads on multi-agency co-ordination of child safety campaigns and learning events in Sutton Borough. Sutton Life Centre is also supporting the event.
The presentations are taking place at the Sutton Life Centre at 12-1pm and 6-7pm on Tuesday, 20 October. Numbers are restricted to 90 places per session for parents only (no children) and will be allocated on a first come, first served basis. To book your place, email firstname.lastname@example.org and provide your name, how many places you wish to book (one or two) and state which session you would like to attend (either 12noon or 6pm). Or call 020 8649 0681 or 020 8649 0613 weekdays up to 4pm. These lines are available between 8am - 4pm. Please note there is no answerphone on these lines.
NAS Sutton is run by parents of young children on the spectrum. They are there to support parents, families, carers and professionals who work with children with ASD. At the moment, they are a small branch that can provide information and signposting to both local and national support networks. They run regular coffee mornings with guest speakers, so members can get together and meet others in similar positions. Their branch website contains details of all local organisations who provide support for families and there is an active Facebook Group that gives up to date information on everything that is going on in the local area.
