Help for young people

Comments about your body or the way you dress, groping and abusive texts all count as sexual harassment. So does being sent images or videos that you don’t want to see. Plus a whole host of other behaviours. You don’t have to suffer in silence. Reach out to the people who can help you put a stop to sexual harassment.
