Click: Path to Protection course dates available to book

Click: Path to Protection is about how professionals need to intervene to support the child and their family from the point of discovery of the online sexual abuse to recovery. It covers considerations at each stage of the journey and different practitioners will have a role at different points on this path. This programme aims to enable all frontline workers to better protect children harmed online. It is an evidence-based, multi-faceted training and support programme.

This initiative, which is supported by BT, aims to ensure that every professional working with children that are either at risk of or the victims of online sexual abuse, understands not only what his/her role entails but also those of their colleagues from organisations jointly charged with protecting children.

Click: Path to Protection is comprised of 3 modules each costing £35. In October and November we are offering dates for the first module, 'Think', and the second module, 'Act'. Please note that you need to complete these in order so if you are new to the programme you will need to register for a 'Think' session first before moving onto 'Act'.

The third module is 'Manage' which will be available to book at a later date.

If you are not familiar with the programme please read this for more information.

“It is comforting to see that the Marie Collins Foundation is trying to address the issues of children harmed online and enabling front line practitioners to conduct work with children that is based on relevant research. I will be a regular visitor to the website and will be advertising the charity in the workshops I facilitate.”
