Press and media enquiries

Social media

Please do not disclose  your experiences of child abuse, or report concerns that someone may be at risk of harm, on any of our social media platforms.

If you wish to share your experiences of child sexual abuse with the Inquiry, please see our Victims and survivors page. If you think someone may be at risk of harm, please see ‘How to report a concern’ on this page.

Our social media platforms are monitored from Monday to Friday, 9am to 5pm. Comments are reviewed on a daily basis. We do not allow offensive, abusive or defamatory comments or submissions. Comments or submissions that suggest or encourage illegal activity are prohibited. Any posts that don’t comply with these rules will be removed.

How to report a concern

If you are concerned that someone may be at risk of harm please report this to your local police force or to the relevant local authority. This will ensure that appropriate action can be taken to protect anyone at risk.

  • If you think someone is at immediate risk, call 999. 

  • If you think someone is at risk but it is not an emergency, call the police on 101 or contact social services via your local authority. For more information see www.gov.uk/report-child-abuse

  • If you are worried about a child, the NSPCC can provide help and advice:
    Call NSPCC helpline – 0808 800 5000
    www.nspcc.org.uk 

Please note that if you tell the Inquiry something that suggests someone might be at risk of significant harm, we may have to pass this information and your details to the police and social care without your agreement.

Your privacy

There are very limited circumstances where we tell anyone your name without your consent, for example if a child is currently at risk and we need to tell the police.
