Child Protection Sexting guidance in region being reviewed

The Child Protection Sexting guidance was introduced in 2015 in response to a significant level of incidents or concerns in relation to sexting amongst young people.

The guidance aimed to provide:

• a shared understanding of sexting, its place, potential risks and impact in young people’s lives

• a shared approach that if consistently applied will support partnership working in response to this issue

• a framework for assessing and responding to potential risks

The Public Protection Committee aims to regularly review this guidance, in order to help them establish how well the guidance is working and identify any changes required.
