Barnardo's welcomes the announcement by Home Secretary Amber Rudd that she is giving an extra 20million to the police to help them tackle online grooming.

Barnardo’s Chief Executive, Javed Khan, said:

We welcome today’s funding announcement by the Home Secretary which is vital to help combat online grooming and help keep children safe.
