CEOP warns of webcam abuse

As you may have seen in the media, CEOP warned of a concerning rise in the use of webcam by sex offenders to blackmail children and young people online.

We want all young people to know that if they are being threatened online, if they’ve shared something they regret, it’s never too late to get help.

Young people might feel like there is no way out but they can always report to CEOP online at www.thinkuknow.co.uk or visiting the CEOP Safety Centre.

The NSPCC have set up a dedicated helpline for young people suffering this type of crime, which will be open 24/7 throughout September and October 2013.

NSPCC helpline: 0800 328 0904

Young people can also call Childline on 0800 1111
