Hosting, sharing, selling and buying child sexual abuse images and videos happens every day around the world.

As a membership organisation with over 130 corporate Members globally we deliver a range of unique technical and practical services to help make their products and services safer for their users and customers wherever they are in the world. Ultimately all of these help us achieve our goal of removing online child sexual abuse images and videos wherever in the world they are hosted, shared or sold.

The IWF is also an industry self-regulatory body and our Members have a role in shaping our policy and code of practice. We are a not-for-profit organisation, registered as a charity in the UK, so your membership fee goes towards the global fight against online child sexual abuse.
