Is This Ok? is a chatbot for 13-18-year olds. The free and anonymous chatbot is for children and young people at risk of, or currently experiencing, sexual or criminal exploitation and/or abuse.
Is This Ok? empowers young people to seek support, who may not otherwise seek help due to worries about disclosing problems. Advice is available online and via a chatbot. Young people can then have a live chat with trained professionals and it also signposts to local support services.
The Is This Ok? website is full of useful information, advice, and guidance for young people on topics like sex, relationships, gangs, or running away.
They also have information for those who work with young people including some downloadable posters that can be displayed anywhere young people could see them such as your local community, schools, youth centres, or health services.
Stoke on-Trent City Council is now working in partnership with Is This OK? to promote the service across the city and is reaching out to local partners to help raise awareness of the service to young people. The council will be receiving data from Is This Ok? to help support young people that access the service in Stoke-on-Trent.
