We minimise the availability of online sexual abuse content. Specifically:

» Child sexual abuse content* hosted anywhere in the world.

» Criminally obscene adult content hosted in the UK.

» Non-photographic child sexual abuse images hosted in the UK.

The majority of our work focuses on the removal of child sexual abuse images and videos.

We work internationally to make the internet a safer place. We help victims of child sexual abuse worldwide by identifying and removing online images and videos of their abuse. We search for child sexual abuse images and videos and offer a place for the public to report them anonymously. We then have them removed. We're a not-for-profit organisation and are supported by the global internet industry and the European Commission.



CEOP works with child protection partners across the UK and overseas to identify the main threats to children and coordinates activity against these threats to bring offenders to account. We protect children from harm online and offline, directly through NCA led operations and in partnership with local and international agencies.Our approach is holistic. Officers in CEOP and across the NCA who specialise in this area of criminality work side by side with professionals from the wider child protection community and industry.

Intelligence developed in the NCA intelligence hub informs NCA-CEOP operational deployments, steers our development of new capabilities and underpins our dedicated ThinkUKnow education programme for children of all ages, parents and carers.

ThinkUKnow is part of the National Crime Agency and has useful information and help for all ages. We minimise the availability of online sexual abuse content.



Parent Info provides high quality information to parents and carers about their children's wellbeing and resilience. Schools can host the content on their own website and use it in any other ways (in letters to parents etc) that they want.

This service is free and ranges across a wide range of subject matter, from difficult topics about sex, relationships and the internet or body image and peer pressure to broader parenting topics like 'how much sleep do teenagers need?'

In line with CEOP's Thinkuknow programme, some of the content covers internet safety, but it all starts from the assumption that young people make little distinction between their online and offline lives and the issues for parents are often the same. The aim is to help parents help their children be discriminating, web-literate and resilient.
