Should I make a report to CEOP?

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

We are here to help and give you advice, and you can make a report directly to us 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.  We take all reports seriously and we will do everything we can to keep you safe.

As well as making a report to us, the CEOP Thinkuknow website has information and advice to help you if something has happened to you online.

If you are in immediate danger please call the police on 999 straight away.  Please also tell an adult you trust who will be able to help you.
