Wherever relevant we share our expertise, tactics, good practice and self-regulatory partnership approach with organisations, policy-makers, Hotlines, governments, law enforcement agencies and others around the world.

We work with UK government to influence initiatives developed to combat online abuse and this dialogue goes beyond the UK and Europe to promote greater awareness of global issues, trends and responsibilities. As part of this the IWF is often asked to respond to consultations with relevance to our work. Below are the IWF’s submissions to recent consultations:

Please note: The IWF uses the term child sexual abuse content to accurately reflect the gravity of the images we deal with. Please note that child pornography, child porn and kiddie porn are not acceptable terms. The use of such language acts to legitimise images which are not pornography, rather, they are permanent records of children being sexually exploited and as such should be referred to as child sexual abuse images. If you see such content online please report it to the IWF.
