HMG engages regularly with international partners on the vital issue of initiatives to tackle child sexual exploitation and abuse.

For example, the Home Office is a permanent board member of the WePROTECT Global Alliance against online child sexual exploitation, alongside the European Commission, enabling us to promote our child sexual exploitation and abuse objectives and priorities in this forum. In addition, the UK, whilst we were an EU Member State, supported, and discussed with Member States and the Commission, the inclusion of provisions in draft EU legislation (the e-Privacy Regulation) to permit the continued protection of children online.
