Something’s Not Right campaign for secondary school children
The Home Office has created a new campaign, ‘Something’s Not Right‘, to help secondary children in England who suffered a range of harms, such as sexual and physical abuse, during lockdown.
The campaign is targeted at 13 – 18 year olds who have become victim to these harms.
The campaign aims to increase their:
- Confidence in identifying the indications of abuse including sexual, physical, relationship and criminal exploitation; and
- Awareness and understanding of how to respond to instances of abuse and exploitation (the reporting channels and support service channels both for themselves and their friends)
With schools re-opened and safeguarding channels restored, the campaign aims to build awareness of the support services available to victims and encourage disclosure of abuse to a trusted adult.
‘Something’s Not Right’ has been developed in close collaboration with the NSPCC, Barnardo’s, The Children’s Society, Internet Watch Foundation and the Marie Collins Foundation.
