Should I make a report to CEOP?

CEOP is  full of people who want to help. We work to keep children safe from sexual abuse and sexual grooming online.

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

You should report to us if something has happened to a friend online which has made them feel unsafe, scared or worried. This might be from someone they know in person, or someone they have only ever met online. If you feel worried about your friend, CEOP is here to help.
