New NSPCC video will help keep deaf children safe from sexual abuse

6 May 2015

The NSPCC is launching a video version of its successful Underwear Rule guidance today to help keep deaf children safe from sexual abuse.

The film is in British Sign Language and includes subtitles. It aims to teach deaf children about the Underwear Rule and encourages them to share secrets that upset them with a trusted adult.

The successful campaign is designed to allow parents to start easy conversations with their children without having to mention scary words like sex or abuse. It teaches them that their privates are private and that their body belongs to them.
