The NCA’s CEOP Command is here to help children and young people. We are here to help if you are a young person and you or your friend (up to age 18) has been forced or tricked into taking part in sexual activity with anyone online, or in the real world. We also have advice and links to support for other online problems young people might face, such as cyberbullying and hacking. Visit our Safety Centre for advice and to report directly to CEOP, by clicking on the Click CEOP button.

Most importantly, there’s also a place which anyone can use to report if they feel uncomfortable or worried about someone they are chatting to online.

The children are taught about e-safety at school and it remains one of our priorities in an ever-changing world. If you would like to continue this education at home then here are some websites for you to view with your child.
National Online Safety
This site has some great resources on the popular social media platforms and some great advice. It's updated regularly with any of the latest issues including Momo.
Internet Safety Tips
Know what your children are doing online and who they are talking to. Ask them to teach you to use any applications you have never used.
- Help your children to understand that they should never give out personal details to online friends...personal information includes their messenger ID, email address, mobile number (if they have one) and any pictures of themselves, their family or friends. If your child publishes a picture or video online, anyone can change it or share it!
- If your child receives spam/junk mail & texts, remind them never to believe them, reply to them or use them.
- It's not a good idea for your child to open files that are from people they don't know. They won't know what they contain - it could be a virus, or worse - an inappropriate image or film.
- Help your child to understand that some people lie online and that therefore it's better to keep online mates online. They should never meet up with any strangers without an adult they trust.
- Always keep communication open for a child to know that it's never too late to tell someone if something makes them feel uncomfortable.
