Report Harmful Content button on our website
Seen something online that you'd like to report? We have a button at the top of our website for you to "Report Harmful Content".
The Report Harmful Content (RHC) button is an asset of the South West Grid for Learning, a charity working internationally to ensure all benefit from technology, free from harm. SWGfL have supplied the code for the button on our website and it links straight through to them.
It's a simple way for anyone (adult or child) living in the UK to access reporting routes for commonly-used sites (e.g. social networking, gaming platforms and streaming services). If it's a child who has seen content, we encourage them to tell an adult they trust about what has happened and to ask for their help to report it. Please read South West Grid for Learning’s how we can help resource together.
Keeping children safe:
Clever Never Goes has been developed to replace the ‘stranger danger’ approach to child safety outside of school. It also applies online. Another website that promotes building children's confidence rather than warning about all strangers is Action Against Abduction.
