Every child deserves the best possible chance to rebuild their life after abuse
That’s why we’re here. That's what drives all our work. And that’s why – as long as there’s abuse – we will fight for every childhood.

The Internet is great for communicating, research, and playing games, but it seems to have acquired a bit of a bad track record for safety and security. Daily reports of viruses doing the rounds and seemingly endless amounts of spam in your mailbox are regular occurrences.
However Sorted can help - this is a new website produced by
Childnet designed by young people for young people. It aims to give you advice and information on computer security issues in a practical and simple way to help you sort out the hassles. Hopefully it can make your online experience just that little bit easier and more enjoyable.



If you are worried about anything, it could be something big or something small - don't bottle it up. It can really help if you talk to someone. If there is something on your mind, ChildLine is here for you.
