Nick Smith MP is lending his support to the NSPCC's new "Share Aware" campaign which aims to get families talking about how to stay safe online. 

The NSPCC has created a new online guide to help inform parents about the risks of different social networking sites used by children at www.nspcc.org.uk/shareaware.

The guide includes advice for social networks, a parent’s guide for top tips on keeping children safe online and guidance for starting a family conversation about the internet.

It comes after the Blaenau Gwent MP supported the NSPCC “Flaw in the Law” campaign, which successfully called on the Government to introduce a new offence so that it is always illegal for an adult to intentionally send a sexual message to a child.   

Mr Smith, a former campaign manager for the charity, said: “I know that parents are increasingly concerned about their children’s safety online but they often don’t know where to start. This is why I’m supporting the NSPCC’s campaign and urging all families to talk about being ‘Share Aware’ on the internet.

“I hope parents will use the NSPCC’s no-nonsense guides to untangle the web, understand what their children may be doing online, and feel confident talking talking to them about how to stay safe.”

People can find out more about the NSPCC campaign at www.nspcc.org.uk/shareaware and join the debate on social media by following #ShareAware.

Anyone looking for advice about keeping children safe online, or concerned about the safety and welfare of a child, can contact the NSPCC’s 24-hour helpline on 0808 800 5000 or email help@nspcc.org.uk

 Children worried about online safety or any other problem can call the free, 24-hour helpline on 0800 1111 or get help online at www.childline.org.uk
