Funding - supporting our work to prevent child sexual abuse
While some of our projects receive some government funding, we are continually looking for new partnerships, donations and additional financial support for our work to prevent and protect children from sexual abuse. To find out more about donating to Stop it Now! visit our donations page.
We receive core funding for the Stop it Now! Helpline from the Public Protection and Mental Health Group (PPMHG) of the Ministry of Justice. Lucy Faithfull Foundation subsidises a third telephone line for caller follow up support and donations help with running costs also. We are delighted that the PPMHG are continuing the funding into 2011/12. However, this is at a fixed rate and we are seeking funding from charitable sources to meet the increasing need for telephone and face- to-face follow up work.
Stop it Now! England campaign
The England campaign has continued to work hard to raise the standard of frontline professional practice through organising regional training days in collaboration with partner agencies such as the police, early year’s services providers and community safety partnerships. Building upon the success of four events held in 2010, a further four were held in 2011 reaching approximately 360 practitioners. Thanks to new funding from the Department for Education, this work will continue from 2011 to 2013 with ambitious plans for reaching 3,500 practitioners in addition to reaching 20,000 adults with Parents Protect! messages.
The Oak Foundation is funding a 3-year pilot project to reach Black and Minority Ethnic communities in London, matching funding from City Bridge Trust funding for Stop it Now! in London.
Black Country and Birmingham
The Black Country and Birmingham project now falls under Stop! England as much of its primary funding from Local Safeguarding Children’s Boards was withdrawn in Autumn 2010.
The campaign is Wales is funded by the Welsh Assembly Government until March 2012. The campaign is seeking further funding to expand work with parents and carers across the country.
Stop it Now! Scotland is fully core-funded by the Scottish Government. All current project funding is provided by the Scottish Government Health Department (Survivor Scotland Strategy) and the Scottish Government Justice Department.
