Who we are

WeProtect Global Alliance brings together governments, the private sector, civil society and international organisations to develop policies and solutions to protect children from sexual exploitation and abuse online.

The Alliance relaunched in 2020 as an independent organisation and is the combination of two initiatives:

  • The European Commission and US Department of Justice’s Global Alliance Against Child Sexual Abuse Online; and
  • WePROTECT, established by the UK Government as a global multi-stakeholder response to combating online child sexual abuse.

Our vision

A digital world designed to protect children from sexual exploitation and abuse.

Our purpose

The internet was created by and for adults; it can be unsafe for children to explore. Every phone and computer is a potential gateway for offenders seeking to sexually exploit children.

Our Alliance generates political commitment and practical approaches to make the digital world safe and positive for children, preventing sexual abuse and long-term harm.

Our mission

WeProtect Global Alliance brings together experts from government, the private sector and civil society.

We break down complex problems and develop policies and solutions to protect children from sexual abuse online.
