Reporting Abuse

Try not to blame your child if they access something inappropriate or behave inappropriately on-line; it is important they know they can trust you to help sort out any difficulties. Know how to report abuse and how to have it removed.   

 

The Internet Watch Foundation receive, assess and trace public complaints about child sexual content on the internet and support the development of website rating systems.  It is also the UK hotline for reporting criminal online content with particular reference to images of child sexual abuse.  The website contains information about laws, assessment and the reporting process.
