Campaign to protect children from indecent images

The Home Office has launched a campaign to better protect children from indecent images, and to raise awareness that viewing sexual images of children under the age of 18 is illegal. The campaign is in response to a survey in February 2017 that found that 11% of 18–24 year-olds don’t think it is illegal to download, view or share images of a child when they are under 18.

The campaign aims to prevent offending before it occurs and disrupt the escalation of harmful behaviour. A support pack includes materials such as videos, posters and infographics.
