Report Harmful Content
Why can we 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.
So You Got Naked Online
A resource that offers children, young people and parents advice and strategies to support the issues resulting from sexting incidents
'So you got naked online...' is a resource that helps and advises young people who may find themselves in a situation where they (or a friend) have put a sexting image or video online and have lost control over that content and who it's being shared with.
Whilst there is a lot of advice around preventing these situations in the first place, it is very important to recognise that this does happen and those affected really need support and guidance.
So you got naked online? aims to do just that - it offers children, young people and parents advice and provides strategies to support the issues resulting from sexting incidents.
