#WakeUpWednesday: What parents need to know about Discord


Launched in 2015, Discord has steadily emerged as a major player in the online communication marketplace – certainly as far as gamers are concerned. Indeed, with the ability to coordinate gameplay and talk tactics with multiple fellow players in real time, it has also become the collaborative platform of choice for many professional e-sports competitors.

The flip side of Discord’s success is that – in addition to genuine gamers who simply want to improve their playing experience or discuss their favourite titles – it’s also attracted unsavoury individuals who use the platform to post extreme political views, belittle other users or share explicit content. Our #WakeUpWednesday guide tells trusted adults what they need to know.

Panorama - Protecting Our Children: A Balancing Act


With more children in care in England than ever before, and the government about to publish a report on the deaths of two toddlers at the hands of their parent’s new partners, Panorama investigates how social workers make critical decisions about children’s lives.


Granted rare, exclusive permission from the family courts, reporter Louise Tickle hears from families who have been damaged by decisions made by one local authority. With the government pushing social workers to step in earlier than ever, what happens if they go too far, too fast?

Healthy Relationships Resource Pack (Safelives)


In 2019, SafeLives gathered the voices and perspectives of men and boys aged 11 and over, asking them about abuse, masculinity and what a 'healthy' relationship looks like. Almost a third of respondents said they had demonstrated behaviour within a relationship that they regretted.


Professionals working with young people are in the unique position to support them to have healthy relationships during this critical window - before they harm or are harmed.

To do this, professionals need to feel confident starting conversations about relationships. Building on the research, SafeLives have developed a resource pack that practitioners could use to start conversations with young people about relationships and explore what healthy looks like.

Rise in reports of children abusing other children


The number of calls to a children's helpline about harmful sexual behaviour between young people increased by 29% over the last year. The NSPCC received 2,365 calls and staff made almost 600 referrals to external agencies, including the police and social services. The charity says the relationship and sex education curriculum in schools needs to be properly resourced.


The Department for Education says it is producing new guidance this year. It says it will help schools teach topics such as sexual abuse and harassment with confidence.
