Grooming is not your fault, it is a crime and is unlawful. The most important thing you can do is to tell someone you trust what is happening so that they can help you.
- Ask the person to stop – tell them you don’t feel comfortable with what they are asking of you
- Tell an adult you trust. You may feel scared to talk to someone about this, or be worried you may get into trouble, but telling someone can really help you to get out of a difficult situation
- Report it (or ask an adult to) to the Police. There is a special part of the Police that is responsible for protecting children and young people from grooming called CEOP
