“Wud U?” App: New educational app by Barnardo’s for use with young people who might be at risk of sexual exploitation

The Wud U? app has been created by Barnardo’s and aims to educate young people about behaviour that could put them at risk of being sexual exploited, through illustrated, interactive stories.

Wud U? will enables teachers and other professionals the chance to present sensitive issues to a group of young people. Professionals will be able to discuss the decisions that they would make if they were in the same situation as the characters within the stories. This app also offersyoung people advice about their decisions

Through the Wud U? app you can:

  • Demonstrate how young people can make safe decisions.
  • Provide your group with more information about sexual exploitation, from a trusted source.
  • Help raise awareness of sexual exploitation by sharing the Wud U? app.

Barnardo’s would like to thank Microsoft and young people they work with for their support in developing this app.

The “Wud U?” app can be downloaded from on Windows Store, Windows Phone, Google Play and the App Store
