Abuse in Education Helpline

Sexual abuse in any form is unacceptable. Following the concerning reports provided to the Everyone’s Invited website, detailing incidents of sexual assault in schools and colleges, the Government is taking immediate steps to support to those affected and ensure all schools are safe places.

That is why we are working with the NSPCC to launch a dedicated helpline for victims of sexual abuse to provide support and guidance.

The dedicated NSPCC Helpline - Report Abuse in Education – launched today (Thursday 1 April) and can be contacted by phone on 0800 136 663, or by emailing

Here’s what you need to know about the helpline.
