As a precaution against the COVID-19 coronavirus, the Internet Watch Foundation will be operating at a reduced capacity. We provide a vital service for the public and are committed to staying open but there is likely to be a delay responding to reports, emails and calls. People can still report child sexual abuse imagery as normal here.

Facebook became an IWF Member on 1 December 2009.
They support us in our aim to eliminate online child sexual abuse.

"At Facebook, we take the issue of child sexual abuse imagery very seriously. This year we’ve worked closely with the IWF and others from the internet industry to develop hash technology which we believe is going to be crucial in the fight against these images. Our partnership with IWF helps us protect the people who use Facebook and prevent the re-victimisation of child victims worldwide.”
Antigone Davis, Head of Global Safety, Facebook

“Partnerships are vital to protect children from abuse and to keep the internet free of illegal content. The UK is fortunate to have the IWF at the heart of our efforts, given its track record and new, proactive focus. Facebook works closely with the IWF team and we have important work ahead to improve our impact still further.” 
Nicola Mendelsohn. VP EMEA, Facebook

“At Facebook nothing is more important to us than maintaining a safe and secure environment for the people who use the site. The Internet Watch Foundation’s support and expertise has been invaluable to our efforts to keep Facebook free of illegal content. We are proud to work alongside the Internet Watch Foundation and their partners from across the internet industry.”
