The work of the Internet Watch Foundation is greatly valued by the UK Government, and is a key part of the UK Safer Internet Centre (UKSIC). Under the terms of the Withdrawal Agreement, the UKSIC will continue to receive EU funding until the end of 2020. Continued UK participation in EU funding programmes is subject to negotiations on the UK's future partnership with the EU. In the event the UK leaves the EU without a deal, the Government has guaranteed successful bids to EU funds submitted by UK participants before the UK exits the EU.
