Summary: Barnardo’s conducted a survey of young people it works with, which identified more than 80 children as victims of this new form of abuse through internet and mobile phone technology. The single largest group of children were those whose abuse was photographed and placed on the internet. Many of these were in their early teens, but there is a trend toward more images of much younger children. The report includes a survey of the work of Barnardo's services and case studies of young people affected. is an online service designed to support and encourage parents and carers of children aged 5-19, with a collection of videos addressing day-to-day questions and concerns spanning wellbeing, behaviour and learning.
