Do you know WHO your child is WITH and WHAT they are doing?
When your child tells you they are going to a friend’s house or asks to ‘sleep out’ they may not always be where you think they are!
- Speak to your child about where they are going every time they go out and if they ask to sleep out at a friend’s ask Who, Where & When.
- Always tell your child if they ask for a ‘sleep out’ you will speak to their friend’s parent/carer to confirm
- Follow this up!
- Explain every time they go out and or ask to sleep over at friends you will ask questions and do a SAFE check because you are responsible to protect them.
This campaign is to promote checking children’s whereabouts to prevent them being at risk and in the Wrong Hands.
