If you have been a victim of online abuse or you're worried about somebody else, let us know securely using the link below:

Sometimes things happen online that make us feel worried, scared or upset. Whatever has happened, it is not your fault. The best thing to do is tell an adult you trust how you are feeling and what has happened. They will be able to help you. 




The Child Exploitation and Online Protection (CEOP) Centre is dedicated to eradicating the sexual abuse of children. That means we are part of UK policing and very much about tracking and bringing offenders to account either directly or in partnership with local and international forces.


CEOP is here to help keep you and other children and young people safe online.  If you are being abused or groomed online we will do everything we can to make you safe.


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. 


Please remember that CEOP are unable to respond to reports about bullying, fake accounts or account hacking.

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 using 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
