Breck Foundation
Parents and carers are invited to join us for a talk from the Breck Foundation. The Breck Foundation is a charity founded by Lorin LaFave after the tragic loss of her 14 year old son Breck Bednar through internet grooming. Using Brecks story, Breck Foundation Speakers travel the UK educating the Digital Generation to keep safer online. They campaign for a safer internet and help train police, educators, health practitioners, safeguarding leads, parents and pupils to ensure that young people are empowered to make safer choices for themselves online. The talk will support parents to keep children safe online and has been organised between all of the Harold Hill schools so that the whole community can benefit.
Parents/carers can attend any of the the dates and venues, the talk is the same just repeated three time to give as many parents as possible to attend. Please be aware that these sessions are for parents only, it is not appropriate for children to attend.
