We work internationally to make the internet safer by removing images of child sexual abuse.
We’re an independent not for profit organisation and work with the global internet industry and the European Commission.
“I want to pay tribute to the crucial work of the Internet Watch Foundation and their partnership with industry, law enforcement and the Government in identifying and removing illegal child sexual abuse images from the internet. We will continue to work together to tackle this ever-evolving threat and to pursue our target of making the UK the safest place in the world to go online.”The Rt Hon Theresa May MP, Prime Minister of the UK, 2016-2019
