On Wednesday 19 December, the Home Secretary urged leading advertising agencies and brands to do more to prevent adverts funding child sexual exploitation and abuse. Supporting this, our Chief Executive Stephen Woodford commented:

“The importance of finding a solution in partnership between government and industry cannot be understated. No responsible business involved in the advertising industry wants their budget, creativity or services to be so wrongfully misused. It is incumbent upon us all to work out a swift and effective way to remove this from the online advertising eco-system.”
