I would say google flomasta or fluidmaster and look at the images, any of those should do the job.

Before you try and replace the valve, have you had a look at the washers inside the screw in parts? It may be just a case of replacing those. Probably a top hat washer that has perished.

With this type of valve, the internal parts that are prone to need attention are basically standard, buy the replacement washers from any diy store and replace them yourself. It does not need a new complete valve, and even it it did, any equivalent would do the job.

1. Turn off the water to the inlet of the cistern. With luck, there will be an isolation valve in the pipe below the cistern leading to the inlet valve. If not, find another way.
2. Disconnect the white plastic arm coming from the centre of the valve, turning a right angle and joining the threaded rod.
3. Unscrew the large white plastic nut with finger grips at the centre of the valve. The nut facing the left hand side of the cistern.
4. Remove the rubber diaphragm washer revealed when the nut is removed. Careful, there may be a stainless steel "needle" (sharp) through the centre of the diaphragm.
5. Take diaphragm to a plumber's merchant and get a replacement.
6. Reassemble in reverse of above.

Some people have too much time on their hands, to be able to type all that! Very helpful to OP, thanks Andy.
