Sexting guidance and advice

There’s now information and advice available for anyone worried about sexting on safe & sound, Dudley’s community safety partnership website.

 

Sexting is when someone sends or receives a sexually explicit text, image or video on their mobile phone, usually in a text message.

 

Situations can easily get out of hand so it’s important young people, parents, carers, schools and colleges are able to easily access help and advice if they need to.

 

The partnership website www.dudleysafeandsound.org/sexting pulls together a range of useful links for young people affected by sexting, providing helpful advice on what to do if they have sent, been sent or are asked to send an explicit text.

 

It also provides information for parents on supporting young people and for schools, colleges and youth settings to help them deal with issues quickly and effectively.

 

Councillor Gaye Partridge, cabinet member for community safety, said:

 

“This is a really important subject and having a range of information in one place on the partnership website is incredibly valuable to young people, their parents and also those who work in schools, colleges or other youth settings.

 

“The website www.dudleysafeandsound.org is a helpful resource, as well as sexting, the website also has useful information on areas such as e-safety and bullying so it’s definitely worth a visit.”
