The campaign being launched today will target women who are concerned about youngsters in their family who may head to Syria and encourage them to talk within the communities.

Police say they're becoming increasingly concerned about youngsters who are considering getting involved in the Syrian conflict.

They're also worried about people heading out for humanitarian reasons.
