Online sexual exploitation of children

What is online sexual exploitation?

Right now, sex offenders around the world - including the UK - are exploiting children without even leaving their homes.

Children are being sexually abused by traffickers, often family members, who share images or videos of the exploitation online.

Many traffickers livestream the abuse for sex offenders to direct, using the same social media platforms we use every day.

This crime is one of the fastest growing forms of human trafficking. In 2022, 1 in every 100 children in the Philippines was abused to create child sexual exploitation materials.

Shockingly, the UK is the third largest global consumer of livestreamed abuse.

Your support is urgently needed to stop this crime.
Will you help keep children safe from abuse now?

“I want to advocate and move our cause forward so that no other child is abused.”

- Azalea*, survivor and advocate for the end of online sexual exploitation
