CEOP is here to keep children safe from sexual abuse and grooming online. CEOP are unable to respond to reports about bullying, fake accounts or account hacking.
We are here to help and give you advice, and you can make a report directly to us if something has happened online which has made you feel unsafe, scared or worried. This might be from someone you know in real life, or someone you have only ever met online. We take all reports seriously and we will do everything we can to keep you safe.
As well as making a report to us, the CEOP Thinkuknow website has information and advice to help you if something has happened to you online.

Anxiety in children
Some very young children through to older secondary school aged children can become over anxious and this can become a real concern for parents. The teenage years can be a fraught time for adolescents and parents alike. It is time of rapid physical development and emotional change and this can be very uncomfortable. You might find these resources useful in helping children in their anxiety
