The Internet Watch Foundation (IWF)

In 2016 alone, 57,335 reports were confirmed as child sexual abuse URLs.

As a member of Internet Watch Foundation, we work with the rest of the internet industry to protect victims of abuse whose images are put online, this includes children and obscene adult content.

IWF is an independent not for profit organisation working with the global internet industry and the European Commission and together with law enforcement, ISPs and the voluntary sector, their aim is to stop criminals using and abusing online technologies.

The majority of IWF’s work focusses on the sourcing and removal of these images and videos to make the internet a safer place for you and your family. Their hotline allows people to report anonymously and confidentially. For further information please visit
