Hello and welcome back to Safeguarding in 60! It’s your quick as a flash safeguarding news rehash! Let’s get started.

This week we’ve been talking about Yubo –which, if you haven’t heard of it before, you could be forgiven for mistaking it for a yogurt brand! But it’s actually a social live-streaming app that helps young people make friends.

We’ve released an online safety briefing about the trending game Poppy Playtime, a horror game that’s full of jump scares. Like most games of this genre, it can cause feelings of fear – learn about the game and how to support a child or young person with those feelings at this link.

Here at Ineqe, online safety is kind of what we do! So we wanted to remind you about how to keep children safe online with our cyber security toolkit – find it here.

A training programme has been launched by the Safeguarding Board for Northern Ireland to help teachers improve their knowledge about trauma. The training will be given to 60,000 educational staff to develop their understanding about how trauma can affect children and young people.

That’s all from me, sign up to get the latest news and info as it happens, and I’ll see you next week!
