Reporting Indecent Images

Childline and Internet Watch Foundation (IWF) have made available a brand new tool so that children and young people can report in indecent image or video of themselves in order that the IWF can take steps to remove it from the internet.  The tool has been under trial for about a year but is now available to all.

Importantly, a young person can even report an image/video that hasn't yet been uploaded and shared.  The IWF will assign a 'hash' to prevent the image being uploaded by anyone.

This is an incredibly positive step forward.  This information is being shared with parents in order to support parents and students.  More information from the IWF can be found  HERE and the Childline reporting tool, Report Remove, can be found HERE.
