Safeguarding

Millions of children across the UK have access to the internet. It is now central to how they stay in touch with their friends and family.

However, the internet is also a public place and while bringing many benefits and opportunities, also opens up new risks and challenges.

That's why the EFL has teamed up with the Child Exploitation and Online Protection (CEOP) Centre.

CEOP is part of the UK police, set up to tackle the sexual exploitation of children. The CEOP Centre aims to educate children, young people, their parents, carers and fans to understand the risks they may face online and what they can do to empower themselves to stay safe.

They also track, locate and hold child sexual offenders to account.

The EFL uses the internet to communicate to all member clubs and through clubs to millions of children.

It's important to understand how to make use of this technology appropriately and working with the CEOP Centres education programme Thinkuknow will help to do this.
