Report Harmful Content is provided by UK Safer Internet Centre and operated by SWGfL.

Why can we help?

We have our experience of running two successful helplines, the Professionals Online Safety Helpline and The Revenge Porn Helpline. This experience has given us the unique set of skills, insights and relationships with industry to provide specialist support.

We studied the community guidelines of several different platforms to determine which types of content are likely to violate terms. We 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. Read the Advice section of our website for more information on these harms and to find simple and clear instructions on what you should do to find the best support.
