Child trafficking and exploitation are abhorrent crimes against those who are inherently vulnerable due to their age. ECPAT UK has long campaigned against the abuse of children and will continue to do so until children everywhere are protected against trafficking.

ECPAT UK is part of the ECPAT International network and we work in coalition with many other organisations in the UK and internationally in pursuit of children’s rights to protection and care.

We are not affiliated or associated with recent high profile online campaigns and public demonstrations against child sex offenders in the UK.

The abuse and exploitation of children invokes strong feelings in all of us who want to stop it and protect children from harm, and ensure victims are supported and can access justice. Our work centres on the rights of the child and we continue to be at the forefront of holding governments, institutions and organisations accountable for children’s rights and protections.
