Online abuse: learning from case reviews

 

The NSPCC has published a briefing looking at case reviews published since 2008 where online abuse was a key factor. The briefing summarises the risk factors and highlights learning for improved practice in case reviews where children and young people died or were seriously injured in ways including: suicide following cyberbullying; death or serious harm following accessing harmful content online; online grooming leading to sexual abuse and exploitation; children sexually abused in order to share images of child sexual abuse online and contact child sexual abuse by perpetrators who had previously been known to police for sharing child sexual abuse images online.
