The mission of INHOPE is to support the network of hotlines in combating online Child Sexual Abuse Material (CSAM).
In a borderless digital world CSAM has global consequences and as CSAM increases so do our efforts and those of our partners to combat it.
INHOPE’s vision is a world free of Child Sexual Abuse Material online.
We advocate for legislative and policy changes with the support and funding from the European Commission.
INHOPE is made up of 47 hotlines around the world that operate in all EU member states, Russia, South Africa, North & South America, Asia, Australia and New Zealand. We support hotlines and their partner organisations through training, best practices, quality assurance and staff welfare.
Establish a hotline
The starting point for any initiative seeking to establish a hotline will be to understand the particulars of the national context in which the hotline will be developed. Before deciding whether it will be feasible and possible to set up an Internet hotline, it is crucial to understand what an ‘hotline’ is, and what it is not.

Run for its Members by its Members
INHOPE is a members' organisation, run for its members by its members. INHOPE is governed by Articles of Association (English translation) and Rules and Regulations. The original Dutch version of the Articles of Association (Deed 25th May 2018), only the text of the Dutch notarial deed executed in the Dutch language prevails. Member hotlines have to comply with a Code of Practice. Members vote to elect a President who leads an elected Executive Committee, also known as the Board.
The Board is charged with the management and administration of the Association. The Board currently consists of six people.
