  • preventing impairment of children’s health or development
  • ensuring that children are growing up in circumstances consistent with the provision of safe and effective care
  • taking action to enable all children to have the best outcomes

Reporting Online Abuse

Click the CEOP button above to access an online mechanism for reporting known or suspected child sexual exploitation or child sexual abuse directly to CEOP - part of the National Crime Agency.

CEOP takes all reports seriously and children of all ages can report through the Click CEOP button. The reporting form is designed to be as accessible as possible by children, but it is highly recommend that young
children seek the support of an adult they trust to help them make a report.
