How can CEOP help me?
CEOP is a law enforcement agency and is here to help keep children and young people safe from sexual abuse and grooming online. We help thousands of children and young people every year who have been in a similar situation to you. CEOP are unable to respond to reports about bullying, fake accounts or account hacking.
We are here to help and give you advice, and you can make a report directly to us if you are worried about online sexual abuse or 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.
If you make a report to us about sexual abuse or grooming online it will be read by one of our Child Protection Advisors who will get in contact with you on the phone number or email address that you give to us to make sure that you are safe. They will also discuss with you what will happen next. Please try not to worry, you have done nothing wrong and we will do all we can to help you.
We work together with lots of other professionals whose jobs are also to make sure you are safe, this includes other police agencies. If a crime has been committed we will work together and use our specialist skills to identify the person or people responsible and bring them into the criminal justice system.
The CEOP Education website also has information and advice to help you to stay safe if something has happened to you online.
CEOP are unable to respond to reports about bullying but if you are being bullied and would like to talk to someone in confidence right now you can call Childline on 0800 1111 or talk to them online – no worry is too big or too small. Please also tell an adult that you trust, like a parent/carer or teacher.
