Every 5 Minutes our analysts in Cambridge find & remove an image or video online of a child suffering sexual abuse.

For too many children, the ordeal of sexual abuse doesn’t end when the abuse stops. The recording, viewing and sharing of countless images online means victims suffer humiliation and misery every time someone clicks on a photo or video of their abuse.

Our brave Cambridge analysts use state-of-the-art tech and skilled human insight to find, assess and remove online images and videos of children being sexually abused. These could be hosted anywhere in the world and contain a level of child sexual abuse most people could not comprehend, let alone cope with seeing. It takes a very special person to do this job.
