Helping a generation of children stay safe

Our Speak out Stay safe programme gives a generation of children the knowledge and understanding they need to stay safe from abuse and neglect. 

Pupils are taught to speak out if they are worried, either to a trusted adult or to Childline.

Helplines and reporting

  • Children can talk to a ChildLine counsellor 24 hours a day about anything that is worrying them by ringing 0800 11 11 or in an online chat at http://www.childline.org.uk/Talk/Chat/Pages/OnlineChat.aspx.
  • If parents or carers are concerned that their child is being contacted by adults as a result of having sharing sexual imagery they should report to NCA-CEOP at www.ceop.police.uk/safety-centre
  • ChildLine and the Internet Watch Foundation have partnered to help children get sexual or naked images removed from the internet. A young person can get their photo removed by talking to a ChildLine counsellor. More information is available at http://www.childline.org.uk/explore/onlinesafety/pages/sexting.aspx
