Talk: Play Safe, Stay Safe - Helping Children Avoid Online Predators - 14 July 2016
Lorin LaFave’s son Breck Bednar loved gaming, but in 2014 he was groomed, lured to a meeting, then murdered by an online predator at the age of just 14. A reconstruction of these tragic and horrifying events was broadcast on BBC3's 'Murder Games: The Life and Death of Breck Bednar'.
Lorin set up the Breck Foundation to raise awareness of online grooming, and show youngsters how to play safe.
This event provides an opportunity to hear Lorin give her personal account of online grooming.
This is a FREE event, but you must book your place online as places are limited.
Please note this event is being filmed.
