Welcome

Stop it Now! England works across the country to ensure that parents, carers and professionals are as best placed as they can be to protect children from sexual abuse.

We believe that child sexual abuse is preventable and that all adults have a role to play in protecting children from sexual harm. This can be best achieved when adults are alert to the signs of child sexual abuse, including the behaviour that someone who might pose a risk to children can display, and knowing where they can seek help and advice.

We work closely with local authorities, LSCBs, police, the government, the voluntary sector and others.

Parent Courses

Stop! England can deliver ‘Parents Protect!’ child sexual abuse awareness workshops for parents and carers at Children’s Centres, Schools, Community Centres and other community groups such as youth and church groups. Thanks to support from the Department for Education, these sessions are available free of charge. Download a leaflet about our Parents Protect! courses. These workshops are supported by the website www.parentsprotect.co.uk. If you would like a workshop to be delivered in your area - ask at your local school, children's centre or community centre to see if one could be organised for yourself and other parents.

These courses do come at a cost and this can be discussed with you.

Parents Protect! Train the Trainer – staff training

Child sexual abuse prevention training for frontline practitioners who already deliver workshops to families. This training will enable you to deliver Parents Protect! workshops to groups of parents/carers and/or community groups as part of your existing job role. Whilst Stop! initially delivers these (as detailed above) we aim to enable local practitioners to take this on, ensuring knowledge is embedded into community based practice.

These courses do come at a cost and this can be discussed with you.

Sector Specific Briefings

The majority of frontline practitioners are not in a position to engage with whole groups of parents – but it is nonetheless important that they have an understanding of preventative initiatives so they can share this information with individual parents on a 1:1 basis. We therefore deliver Parents Protect! Briefing Sessions to specific groups of frontline practitioners (e.g. GPs, social workers, health visitors), to help them incorporate child sexual abuse prevention initiatives into their day-to-day working practices. These briefing sessions can be delivered locally in the workplace or at more central regional venues where larger numbers can be accommodated.

These courses do come at a cost and this can be discussed with you.

Attendance at conferences

We are happy to contribute to events organised by our strategic partners - from the statutory and voluntary sectors, and we can provide a range of services including:

  • keynote addresses on the work of Stop it Now! and the prevention agenda
  • workshops which raise awareness of child sexual abuse prevention
  • information stands staffed by one of our team, or just a selection of our printed resources for delegate packs

Information stands

We are keen to provide information stands or resources at large-scale community events e.g. Bath and West show and Three Counties show. We would welcome the opportunity to partner with appropriate organisations (police, early years, health colleagues) at such events.

Leaflets/Posters

A broad range of posters and leaflets for use by frontline practitioners working in communities and with families are available (costs are minimal and will depend on carriage charges and quantities). Visit our Resources pages for more details.
