Should I make a report to CEOP?

CEOP works to keep children safe from sexual abuse and sexual grooming online.

We are here to help and advise you, but if you think a child is in danger right now, please call 999.

You can report to us if you are concerned that a child is being sexually abused or sexually groomed online. This can be from someone they know in person, or someone they have only ever met online. If you feel worried about a child, CEOP is here to help.

What kind of things do concerned adults report?

Things concerned adults have reported include:

  • I am worried a child is being groomed online
  • A child has shared a nude picture online and is now being threatened
  • A child is meeting up with someone they met online
  • A child has seen something online which I would like to report
  • I've noticed changes in a child's behaviour which I think may be due to someone they met online
  • A child has learning difficulties and I am worried about the people they are talking to online
  • I am worried that a child's abusive father/mother is trying to contact them online

If you are worried that a child is in immediate danger please call the police on 999 straight away.

If you have come across content online that you feel involves child abuse, please consider making a referral to the particular website administrators, and/or contacting the Internet Watch Foundation (IWF) who could possibly arrange for the content to be removed.

Worried about bullying?

If you are worried about a child or young person being bullied online, or want to speak to someone right now, you can call the NSPCC helpline at any time.
