Our political engagement
We make the internet a safer place. We help victims of child sexual abuse worldwide.
To help raise awareness of our Hotline and services and to make a bigger difference, we aim to have our work widely embraced internationally.
We work in many ways to achieve this.
Our IWF Champions initiative is for political figures who can help us further create more awareness of our work.
We operate independently of government, but have a good working relationship with the Home Office, the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills, the Ministry of Justice the Department for Education and the Department for Culture, Media and Sport and a number of MPs, Peers, MLAs, AMs, MSPs and MEPs who take an interest in our work.
We are a member of the UK Council for Child Internet Safety (UKCCIS) and have a seat on the Council’s Executive Board as well as representation on its working groups. Uniting over 100 organisations from the private and public sectors, UKCCIS works with the Government to deliver the recommendations from Dr Tanya Byron's report, Safer Children in a Digital World .
Wherever relevant and useful, we contribute to Government initiatives and public consultations.
