Introducing ….

….  Stop it Now! UK and Irelands child sexual abuse prevention campaign.

It is run by the Lucy Faithfull Foundation, the only UK-wide child protection charity dedicated solely to reducing the risk of children being sexually abused. They “support adults to play their part in prevention through providing sound information, educating members of the public, training those who work with children and families and running our freephone confidential Helpline.”

There Helpline is available to:

  • adults worried about the behaviour of other adults or children and young people
  • those worried about their own sexual thoughts or behaviour towards children, including those with concerns about their online behaviour
  • friends and relatives of people arrested for sexual offending, including internet offending
  • any other adult with a concern about child sexual abuse – including survivors and professionals

They “believe that child sexual abuse is preventable, not inevitable, and urge abusers and potential abusers to seek help. By working together we can prevent child sexual abuse.”

They have produced a leaflet for families of offender to help offer advice and support.  Please find the leaflet below…
