The updated course costs £30 and all proceeds go to the NSPCC. To register your interest please visit: nspcc.org.uk/kcso
It can seem difficult to keep up-to-date with the technology that children use. You can find out much more information and support about digital technologies by clicking on the “Think You Know” logo

New Safety Centre – ClickCEOP Reporting

The ClickCEOP button provides a direct route for children, young people, parents, carers and professionals to report incidences of child sexual abuse directly to CEOP.

Although anyone can report to CEOP through the button, its primary focus is to encourage children and young people to report to CEOP if they are ever worried or concerned about contact made to them by an adult on or offline. Over the past few months we have been working hard to make this reporting form (our ‘safety centre’) more engaging, accessible and young-person friendly.

The new Safety Centre (out in Autumn) will be mobile friendly and take only the critical information needed to safeguard the child or young person. It will now provide reporters key information on:

  • Should I make a report to CEOP?
  • What happens when I make a report?
  • How can CEOP help me?
