#CyberChoices

To impress upon teenagers the severity of computer-related offenses, the NCA has created the #CyberChoices initiative. A program targeting parents of children aged 12-15, #CyberChoices seeks to highlight not only the criminal tools that teenagers unwittingly flock to but also what the consequences might be if their children are found to have violated the Computer Misuse Act.

Latest research suggests at least one in six children aged 11-17 become victims. We work to prevent abuse from happening in the first place - and to prevent it from happening again if it already has. Where abuse has already taken place, we work with all those affected including adult male and female abusers; young people with harmful sexual behaviour; children with concerning sexual behaviours; victims of abuse and other family members. But we also work in families and with adults and young people where there has been no abuse, to help them keep themselves and others as safe as possible.
