Think you or a friend might have been sexually or criminally exploited?
Want some advice or someone to talk to?
Exploitation is never your fault.
If someone is in immediate danger call 999. If you have concerns about sexual exploitation, you can call the local police on 101.
For 24/7 free, confidential help and advice you can call or text 116000 a dedicated sexual exploitation helpline run by the Missing Persons Charity.
If you want to anonymously discuss concerns about grooming, sexual or criminal exploitation you can speak to Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 or Childline on 0800 1111 or online.
Alternatively, you could speak with a trusted adult such as a parent, grandparent, carer, teacher, youth, health or social worker, and you can use this website to work out the next steps to take together.

When you call 101, the system will determine your location and connect you to the police force covering that area. You will hear a recorded message informing you that you’re being connected and then you will be given a choice of which force to be connected to. Calls to 101 are answered by police officers and staff in the control room of the local police force.
You should only call 101 to either report a crime or report concerns that do not need an emergency response. Emergencies should always be 999. All calls to 101 have a charge of 15p no matter how long the call or what time of day.
When you ring 999, the operator will ask you which emergency service you require and the number you are calling from. When the operator transfers your call to Humberside Police they will inform the Call taker of the telephone number you are calling from. The Call taker will ask you the location of the emergency and what the emergency is. They will then take your details.
This process may take time but it is very important to get the correct information from you to make sure your call is handled appropriately whilst protecting the safety of the public and our Officers. The call taker will ‘control’ the call so that the appropriate information is gained as quickly as possible.
All calls are answered by trained volunteers and you control what you tell them, you can say nothing or you can tell them your worries whether about yourself or someone else.
If you want to pass on information to the police or too a loved one you can, although you will need to provide the call taker with more information.
If you don’t want to call you can send a text to the same number.
The hotline is managed by the missing persons charity but they are specially trained in sexual exploitation as well.
