  • #SaySomething - 116000

#SaySomething: The new, free, anonymous, 24/7 line where you can report worries about sexual exploitation.

You can now call and text the new #SaySomething service on 116 000.

You don't need to tell us who you are, we can't tell what number you are calling us on and we won't judge you or tell you what to do.

Are you being pressured into having sex or know someone who is? Perhaps your boyfriend isn't treating you right or someone took photos of you on their phone and is showing everyone? Maybe your friend isn't safe and you don't know what to do. Now there is a place where you can Say Something.

It is not OK for someone to expect you or your friends to do things you don't want to. Listen to your instinct; if it doesn't feels right, Say Something.

116 000 is the number to call or text if you want to talk about how you are feeling, need some advice or want to pass information on to the police but don't want to tell them yourself.

If you are worried about yourself or someone, we are here for you. We will listen to, understand and help you.

We know that it's hard to start talking about secrets or problems. We know that sometimes it's hard to talk to a teacher, parent, the police or social worker, especially when you think they will have to do something with the information you give them. We know that sometimes it's difficult to know who to talk to at all.

The Say Something team don't know who you are unless you choose to tell us. We can't make decisions for you; you are in control.

Want to talk? We're here when you are ready, free, anonymous and available 24/7.

Call or text 116 000 or email 116000@missingpeople.org.uk. You can text us even if you have no credit left on your mobile phone. Our number won't show on your bill.
