Worried about something that has happened online?

The CEOP Education team is a part of the National Crime Agency and we run an education programme which provides training, resources and information for children and young people aged 4 – 18, their families and professionals who work with them.  

CEOP is here to help keep you and other children and young people safe online.  If you are being sexually abused or groomed online we will do everything we can to make you safe. Please remember that CEOP are unable to respond to reports about bullying, fake accounts or account hacking.

If you decide to report to us, all you need to do is tell us what you know about what has happened. Don’t worry if you feel like you don’t know all of the details, whatever you tell us will be useful.

Please remember whatever has happened it is not your fault and nothing you say will shock or surprise us, we deal with this every day and are here to help you.

The most important thing to remember is that you have contacted us and as a law enforcement agency there is a lot that we can do to make sure you are safe. 

What will CEOP do with my report?

Your report will be read by a Child Protection Advisor at CEOP. Our Child Protection team are specialist workers who have helped thousands of children. They will immediately start thinking about how they will help you. 

If you are reporting sexual abuse or grooming, a Child Protection Advisor will contact you by phone or email as soon as they can and will work with you to make a plan to keep you safe.

The Child Protection Advisor may need to talk to other adults about what you tell them to help keep you safe. They will only share what you tell them if they really need to and will always take your feelings into account when deciding the best ways to help you.
