It is great to see the UK showing leadership to the world in addressing these abhorrent forms of child abuse.
The Office of the Children's Commissioner is at the forefront of work to prevent children from being harmed by abuse.

We will also be publishing evidence showing how it can best be stopped and the victims supported.'
