ECPAT UK was established in 1994 as The Coalition Against Child Prostitution in Tourism with a mandate to campaign against child sex tourism and lobby for laws and policies to protect children and prosecute British nationals who sexually abuse children abroad. In 1997, as a result of these campaigns the UK Government introduced new legislation to prosecute UK nationals for abusing children abroad. The ‘Coalition’ became the UK national representative of the international ECPAT network in 1997 and in July 2004 became a UK registered charity.
