The Child Exploitation and Online Protection (CEOP) is a command of the UK's National Crime Agency.  The main purpose of CEOP is to protect children from sexual abuse and exploitation both online and offline. 

You can make a report directly to the CEOP Safety Centre by clicking on the 'Report here' button below 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.  CEOP take all reports seriously and we will do everything
we can to keep you safe.

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

Are you being bullied?

CEOP are unable to respond to reports about bullying but if you’re being bullied and would like to talk to someone in confidence right now, you can speak to Childline on 0800 1111 or talk to them online – no worry is too big or too small.

The CEOP Button has been developed to be used by children, parents/carers and others to report known or suspected child sexual exploitation or child sexual abuse directly to CEOP. Children under 11 years of age are encouraged to tell an adult they trust and ask for their help in either reporting issues to CEOP or the local police. It offers a convenient and potentially less intimidating method of reporting these sensitive types of crime, alternative to face-to-face and telephone reporting to local police forces. The CEOP reporting service is available Monday to Friday, from 9.00am to 5.00pm. Reports outside of these hours should be made by contacting the Police via 101 or online here. If there is a threat of immediate danger, the Police should be contacted by calling 999.
