IT'S NOT OK.....young people's stories

its not ok yp stories

To help raise awareness of child exploitation, a group of young people in Cumbria have put their creative minds together to make a series of films about child safety.

The young people involved in the production of these films are from across the county, and have helped write, animate and perform parts of the videos.

The three films, which use the stories of fictional characters to highlight the issues of healthy/unhealthy relationships, exploitation and online safety, have been made  as part of the CSCP and NSPCC's year-long campaign IT'S NOT OK.
