REPORT HARMFUL CONTENT
The Report Harmful Content button is an asset of SWGfL, a charity working internationally to ensure all benefit from technology, free from harm.
The button has been developed to offer anyone living in the UK a simple and convenient mechanism for gaining access to reporting routes for commonly used social networking sites, gaming platforms, apps and streaming services alongside trusted online safety advice, help and support. It also provides access to an online mechanism for reporting online harm to the RHC service for those over the age of 13 where an initial report has been made to industry but no action has been taken. RHC will review content in line with a sites’ community standards and act in a mediatory capacity where content goes against these.
Need to report abuse?
If you are concerned about exploitation or online abuse or are worried about someone else, you can click on the ‘report abuse’ button on this page which will take you to the CEOP page (child exploitation and online protection centre).
