Together for Families (Cornwall Council) have been made aware of the following safeguarding concerns:

 

  • There have been incidents locally of children being groomed through Snapchat and an online platform called Omegle. There have been 3 cases reported and they appear to have connections to others in their school and other schools. Police and social services are involved.
  • There has been a local incident with a hack on the game Roblox. It appears that players are invited to open a gift which is a camera. This then takes a photo and is then shared with other users. This has also involved a child potentially being groomed. Police are involved.
Please be careful and vigilant.
