Emergency Funding Appeal
COULD YOU DONATE A POUND (or more) TO OUR ‘A POUND TO PROTECT’ APPEAL
Text STOP44 1 to 70070 to donate £1
Support our efforts to raise £100,000 to ensure families get the information they need to protect children.
Due to government cut backs, our Stop it Now! England campaign has lost vital funds. Its work to equip adults with the information they need to protect children is under threat from April 1st 2013 when current funding expires.
1 in 6 children experience some form of sexual abuse in their childhood – but only a small proportion of offences get reported. Recent media coverage of high profile child sexual abuse cases demonstrate that sexual abuse can happen anywhere – without anyone noticing the signs. It is also common for those with concerns to not know where to go for help.
Over the last 10-years Stop it Now! has equipped tens of thousands of adults with the information they need to protect children from harm – and with funding we can continue to do so.
You can also choose to increase your donation. Select from the amounts below ranging between £1 to £10 and send the code to 70070.
Please help us continue our work and donate today by texting STOP44 1 to 70070 or giving online here.

Prevening abuse: creating no more victims
We work to prevent abuse from happening in the first place; before there is an offender to punish and a victim to heal. Children should not be expected to protect themselves. Adults need to know the signs to look out for in children and adults and know where to get help if they have concerns.
