Report Harmful Content
Why can they help?
This organisation has experience of running two successful helplines, the Professionals Online Safety Helpline and The Revenge Porn Helpline. This experience has given them the unique set of skills, insights and relationships with industry to provide specialist support.
They studied the community guidelines of several different platforms to determine which types of content are likely to violate terms. They have worked hard to create a safe and effective platform to report harmful content.
There are some types of content for which Report Harmful Content cannot offer support.
This is because there are dedicated, specialist services that exist already – for example, Action Counters Terrorism.

Professionals Online Safety Helpline
Supporting professionals working with children and young people, with any online safety issue they may be having
The Professionals Online Safety Helpline is a free service for professionals and volunteers working with children and young people. It provides signposting, advice and mediation to resolve online safety issues staff face about themselves, such as protecting professional identity and online harassment, or problems affecting young people, for example cyber-bullying or sexting issues.
The helpline is open Monday to Friday, during normal working hours, and they aim to respond to calls within 3 hours where possible.
Revenge Porn Helpline
A UK service supporting adults (aged 18+) who are experiencing intimate image abuse, also known as, revenge porn.
The Helpline was established in 2015 alongside the legislation which made it an offence to share intimate images or videos of someone, either on or offline, without their consent with the intention of causing distress.
The Helpline is run by a small team of passionate and motivated individuals who are here and ready to help.
If you have been a victim of intimate image abuse, a Helpline practitioner can give you advice and support. You are not alone with this and they can help. You can reach them on the phone, by email, Facebook Messenger or by sending them an anonymous ‘Whisper’ report.
The Helpline is open from 10 am to 4 pm, Monday to Friday excluding bank holidays.
Call: 0345 6000 459
