CEOP is a command of the National Crime Agency and is dedicated to tackling the sexual abuse and exploitation of children and young people. CEOP helps children and young people under the age of 18 who have been forced or manipulated into taking part, or are being pressured to take part, in sexual activity of any kind. This can be both online and offline. The CEOP Safety Centre offers information and advice for children and young people, parents and carers and professionals. You can visit the CEOP Safety Centre and make a report directly to CEOP by clicking the Click CEOP button.
Online bullying or other online concerns should not be reported to CEOP and children and young people should be directed to speak to an adult they trust, and/or referred to Childline, if they would like to speak to someone about how they are feeling.

The Department for Education has commissioned the NSPCC to launch a new helpline called Report Abuse in Education

 

The helpline comes after numerous anonymised testimonials of sexual harassment and abuse in schools and colleges were shared to the Everyone’s Invited website.

This new helpline will also offer support and guidance to adults and professionals working with children in education​

 

Young people and adults can contact Report Abuse in Education on 0800 136 663 or email help@nspcc.org.uk
 

The newly launched helpline will provide support to:

  • children and young people who want to share current and non-recent experiences of sexual abuse and harassment

  • children and young people who want to talk about being involved in or witnessing any incidents

  • anyone who works or volunteers in a school setting and needs support and guidance

  • adults who have experienced non-recent abuse

  • parents and carers who are concerned about their own child or other children.
