Last year, over 45,000 supporters urged the government to introduce new laws to protect children from sexual abuse online.

Your voice was heard by the government and we got a commitment that tech companies would be regulated. Since then the government has developed their proposals for what laws would look like, including adopting a legal Duty of Care.

Now it’s time for MPs to show support for these new laws. We need your help to get your MP’s support in Parliament.

We need a new law to protect children online

We're asking the Government to create a new law to make social networks safer for children.

  • An independent regulator
    We demand an independent regulator is created who can put in place mandatory child safety rules for social networks and has the power to fine them if they don't make their networks safe.
  • Safe accounts for children
    We demand social networks offer safe accounts for children and proactively search for, and stop, child grooming on their platforms. Social networks must make it easier for users to report concerns about child safety and provide a dedicated fast-track process for reporting.
  • Detailed reporting on how they're keeping children safe
    We demand children and parents are told how safe the networks are. Social networks must publish details of how they’re keeping children safe and how they deal with reports and complaints.
