Children sending and receiving sexual messages

Snapshot 1

The NSPCC and LGfL Digisafe recently conducted the largest ever UK survey of children’s experiences online. We received almost 40,000 responses from children aged 7-16, who shared their experiences and understandings of the risks they face online. Our first snapshot, exploring the findings of this survey, focuses on children’s experiences of online grooming, especially their experiences of receiving and sending sexual messages.
