These videos have been designed for sports organisations to use during group sessions or training with staff on the subject of online safety. 

Each video poses a scenario, asks viewers to think about the potential responses and details the actions that could be taken to manage the concern in question and improve practice. 

You can use these videos to help identify any gaps in knowledge and improve your case management processes around online safety concerns.
