Advice about reporting

It is important for all internet users to continue to report any content they see online that might be illegal or break the community standards of a platform. Find out more about how to report to social media companies: www.saferinternet.org.uk/advice-centre/social-media-help

You can report illegal content, such as images or videos of a child being sexually exploited, to the Internet Watch Foundation: www.iwf.org.uk.

If you are concerned about the sexual exploitation of a child on the internet, you can report to the National Crime Agency’s CEOP Command: www.ceop.police.uk/ceop-report

For schools who need support about reporting issues on social media sites, they can contact the Professionals Online Safety Helpline: www.saferinternet.org.uk/helpline

If you are a young person and need support about concerns online, whether it’s about you or a friend, then we would encourage you to speak to a trusted adult or contact Childline on www.childline.org.uk
