The GoTo

North Yorkshire County Council jointly with the NHS have created a new website to help support mental health within young people. This new website is dedicated to helping children and young people find mental health support in North Yorkshire.  The Go-to is a portal or ‘single point of information’ for mental health support services offered by different agencies in the county. With lots of useful tips, information and signposting the site has specific ‘young person’, ‘parent/carer’ and ‘professional’ tabs for easy navigation.

E-safety...apps, games and social media

NSPCC have reviewed the most popular apps, games and social media your children are using. They have then created easy to read guides to support you in supporting your child. Each game, app and social media site have background information which outlines their legal age requirements along with a description of its use. It is then rated against key e-safety areas: safety features, privacy and location, reporting and blocking and content. Before finally giving it an overall safety rating.

Online Safety at Home is a great website with plenty of information for parents to support their families to stay safe on the internet. Read this newsletter to find out how you can support the safety of your child at home. It has lots of great top tips as well as links for further information, advice and videos.
