About Fearless

What is Fearless?

Fearless is a site where young people can get non-judgemental advice and information about crime.

Fearless is part of the UK charity, Crimestoppers.

Who is it for?

Crimestoppers is for everyone in the UK but Fearless is aimed at young people. We know you’re at risk of crime as well as adults and want to give you clear information about crimes that might affect you as well as the chance to give information anonymously if you don’t want to go to the police.

Those who work with young people can access free resources and posters from the "Not a young person" section of the site.

When should you contact us?

If you have information about crime and you are unsure who to talk to you can tell us 100% anonymously. We’re available 24/7, 365 days a year and will never ask for your personal details.

It is important to know that we are not an emergency service. We cannot respond to emergency situations, if you think a crime is happening in front you or someone is injured please call 999.

Call us if know any information about a crime that has happened or is being planned.

How does it work?

You can give us information about crime in 2 ways. 

We’ll pass it to the police and so that you can remain anonymous meaning you don’t have to give your name, a statement or go to court.

1. Use our secure online form

If you use our secure online form, put as much information as you can because we can’t ask you for any more. We can’t trace your computer or IP address. If you’re worried someone else will find out delete the page from your history

2. Call 0800 555 111

When you call us, someone will tell you you're through to Crimestoppers. They won't ask for your name, where you live, or any personal details. They'll only ask for information about the crime you're calling about. 

Don't worry we can't trace your call and it won't be recorded. 

 

What does anonymous mean?

Anonymous means you don’t have to give your name, where you live or any personal details. 

  • Calls aren't recorded or traced.
  • We can't track where online forms are from. 
  • You won't have to give a statement.
  • You don't have to go to court. 

Just tell us what you know, not who you are.

Is it snitching?

The definition of ‘snitching’ is to act as an informer or steal.

We're just asking you to give us information about crime in your community to protect you, your family and your friends. No one will know you have contacted us.

Is it safe?

Yes, it’s totally safe because it’s 100% anonymous - meaning only you will know that you have contacted us.

The charity, has never revealed anyone’s identity in over 25 years. We don’t know who you are so no one else can find out and you aren’t at risk.

No calls or online forms are traced or recorded, no one will ask why you’re contacting us and you won’t have to give a statement or appear in court.
