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 2012/13. 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.
The England campaign 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 from 2010-2013. With funding form the Department for Education, the campaign reached over 4,754 workers and 27,484 parents and carers.
The Oak Foundation funded 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. This project ended in March 2013. However, further funding from Oak Foundation is allowing us to extend some of this work across the UK and Europe.
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 England as much of its primary funding from Local Safeguarding Children’s Boards was withdrawn in Autumn 2010.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.
