CEOP is there to keep you and other children safe from grooming or sexual abuse online.
You can report to CEOP’s Safety Centre if something has happened online which has made you feel unsafe, scared or worried.
This might be from someone you know in real life, or someone you have only ever met online.
Some of the things young people have reported to CEOP include:
- Someone online has asked me to send them nude images
- I shared a nude image with someone online and they are threatening me
- I did something that I was embarrassed about on camera and someone has turned nasty towards me
- Someone I don't know is asking me to live-stream and do things I don't want to do
- Someone online kept asking me to meet them face-to-face and I feel pressured by them
- Someone online was talking to me about sex and it made me feel uncomfortable
- Someone online is putting pressure on me to do things I don't want to do
- Someone I met in an online game keeps trying to talk to me privately
What happens when I make a report to CEOP?
Your report will be read by a Child Protection Advisor at CEOP. 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 using as soon as they can. They 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.
Your feelings will always be taken into account when deciding the best ways to help you.
