Children and Young People Cross Party Group
Claire was fortunate to be a spectator at the Children and Young People cross party group at the Scottish Parliament. The subject for this session, ‘Revenge Porn’ definitely makes you sit up and take notice. A topic that is not specifically child protection as we have come to understand it in recent years, with the threat being posed by adults, but an issue that most parents increasingly have to be aware of if they have teenage or even younger children, regardless of gender or background as the victims come from across the social spectrum. The Scottish Government have committed to bringing forward legislation around the sharing of illicit images as part of the Abusive Behaviour and Sexual Harm Bill and from the meeting it was clear this was both welcome move and one that could not happen quickly enough, as the problem is a vast and thorny one, with many of the perpetrators children themselves, adding an extra layer of complexity. There is an ongoing need to address this issue. Red Harbour would be keen to explore opportunities with like-minded organisations.
