How we can help you if you’re worried about the online sexual behaviour of another adult

We provide information, advice, and support for people worried about a family member or friend engaging in online sexual offending against a child, regardless of whether they have been arrested. We can help you understand and cope with your situation and give guidance for moving forward.

If your loved one has been arrested, we can give information about the police investigation and the criminal justice system to help you navigate the process. We understand the significant impact this can have on family and friends, and we are here to provide practical and emotional support to make sense of the situation.

Anonymous helpline

If you have any concerns, questions, or would just like to talk about what you are going through, our experienced, non-judgemental helpline advisors are here to support you. You can stay anonymous and don’t have to give your real name or any contact details. If you’re not ready to speak to anyone yet, you can also use our live chat or send a secure email.

Family and Friends Forum

Our Family and Friends Forum is a safe space to share experiences and learn from other people who have gone through the same thing. It can help you prepare for the next stage in the process and better understand the impact on you and your family. We recommend speaking to one of our helpline advisors before visiting the forum, as some content may be upsetting.

Family and friends group programme (Inform)

For partners, relatives and friends of people who have offended online, our educational programme called Inform can help.
