Someone I know might be at risk
If you're worried that a young person may be at risk, here’s what you can do:
Talk to them about your concerns
Help them check their privacy settings
Help them report suspicious behaviour
Talk about it with a parent or carer
Help them block or un-friend the person
Tell them you’re there to help and want them to be safe
Tell them it's not their fault if they're in this situation
Encourage the child to talk to someone and get support
Talk it through with a Kids Helpline counsellor
We all have a role to play in keeping young people safe
There's always someone you can talk to and get advice from
You're not alone in protecting a young person from online grooming. If you need support call the Parentline service in your State or Territory and talk through your options with a counsellor.
Encourage the young person in your life to talk with a counsellor if they're worried or upset about anything that happens online.
Talking helps! We’re here for you.
No problem is too big or too small.
We're here 24 hours a day, 7 days a week
