Minecraft is played by millions of children around the world, who can use their imagination to build three-dimensional worlds with virtual building blocks in a digital, pixelated landscape. The risks that parents need to be aware of with this game include cyberbullying, "griefing", online grooming and susceptibility to viruses and malware. 

This guide aims to give parents and teachers practical tips on how to ensure this game can be enjoyed safely.

Staying Safe on Facebook

 North Yorkshire Council have launched a new children and families prevention service that brings together a range of preventative work previously undertaken by separate services.

There is now a single service which:

  • Operates seamlessly throughout the 0-19 age range;
  • Eliminates duplication, unnecessary and unhelpful transitions for families;
  • Has a new way to provide services, including a greater capacity to provide early help in a more targeted way to children, young people and families.

Please click on the following link for more information on the Prevention Service.
