Download and share this factsheet with parents to help them keep their child safe on the streaming site Twitch.

Twitch is a website where users can watch videos and live streams of others, typically playing computer games. Live streaming makes it harder to censor what people share or what language they use, so children could be exposed to inappropriate or bullying content. There's also a risk of strangers talking to children and grooming them.

You can share this factsheet however you think is best - whether that's by email, printing copies, or putting it on your school website. We just ask that you keep our logo on it, so it's clear that it was produced by The Key Safeguarding from The Key.
