CEOP and Useful Websites
When should I report to CEOP?
We help children stay safe online. Has someone acted inappropriately towards you online, or to a child or young person you know? It may be sexual chat, being asked to do something that makes you feel uncomfortable or someone being insistent on meeting up. You can report it to us below.
Who should I tell?
Tell an adult you trust about the cyberbullying. This could be a parent or carer, a teacher at your school, an aunt or uncle. If you tell someone they can help make it stop. The evidence you have saved can then be passed onto the adult you have told.
You can also talk to CyberMentors. They are a group of young people who can talk to you about the bullying and give helpful advice and support. Find them at www.cybermentors.org.uk
If you feel you can’t talk to someone just yet, call Childline in confidence on 0800 1111.
For more information and advice you can visit a great site called Beat Bullying: www.beatbullying.org
