Extremism

Extremists are targeting and grooming impressionable young people through social media and the internet in order to influence their minds in much the same way that sexual predators operate online.

Their message can have a powerful impact on someone who’s young, possibly unsure of their path in life, and may lack confidence.

Parents or carers who have concerns about their children being exposed to extremism or radicalisation can access a variety of materials to help understand the risks.

The NSPCC provide a range of useful resources (click the box on the right) and you can contact them 24/7 if you are worried a child is being radicalised on 0808 800 5000.
