National Safety Tool

The Government has launched a new online tool for schools to give parents advice and tips on preparing their children for adult life.  The new online service, called Parent Info, will give parents the information they need to help them navigate the minefield of issues children can now face on everything from spotting the warning signs of self-harm, to having a healthy body image and managing money in a digital world.  As well as giving them the confidence and support to speak to their children on such sensitive issues, it will also provide them with pathways for where they can go for more hands on support on specific issues.  Up to 550 schools are already hosting the new Government-funded site and the site itself has had 48,000 page views in the past month alone.
