Child exploitation and online protection

The Child Exploitation and Online Protection CEOP Centre works across the UK and uses international links to tackle child sex abuse wherever and whenever it happens. Part of the way it does this is by providing internet safety advice for parents and carers and delivering a virtual police station for reporting abuse on the internet.

What you can report to CEOP

Any activity which makes you feel uncomfortable, for example, a conversation with someone online who you think may be an adult, who is trying to meet you for sex.

The Internet Watch Foundation (IWF) was formed in 1996 following an agreement between the government, police and the internet service provider industry that a partnership approach was needed to tackle the distribution of child abuse images online.

What the IWF does

The IWF is an independent body operating the only authorised non-police 'hotline' in the UK for the public and IT professionals to report their inadvertent exposure to illegal content on the internet.

If the child is at immediate risk phone the police. Dial 999.
