Family and Friends Forum

Welcome to the Family and Friends Forum.

We’ve spoken to hundreds of people who have been affected by someone close to them viewing sexual images of children online. Everyone is different but we know that many family members are deeply shocked and distressed by their family member’s behaviour, their lives maybe turned upside down, and they may feel isolated and alone. Not only do we hope this forum will be a valuable source of information, we want it to reduce people’s sense of isolation and to give them a sense of hope for the future.

Please note that this is an open forum and anyone can read posts. However, if you want to post a message – and we hope you do – you will need to register.

You can learn more on how to use the forum here and our forum agreement is here.
