Welcome to Stop it Now! Scotland

Stop it Now! Scotland is the national programme for the prevention of child sexual abuse.

We work to make Scotland's children and young people, and our communities, safer by:-

  • providing information about child sexual abuse and sex offending
  • promoting the engagement of communities in preventing sexual abuse and protecting children
  • providing and participating in projects to help individuals, agencies and communities prevent child sexual abuse
  • working in strong partnerships with other agencies and organisations to make Scotland safer.

We believe that child sexual abuse is preventable and that adults must take responsibility for protecting children by seeking early help when they are concerned about their own thoughts or behaviour or that of other people.
This can be best achieved when adults are alert to the signs of child sexual abuse and the behaviour that might pose a risk to children and when they know where the can seek help and advice.

Stop it Now! Scotland works closely with the Government, the Police, local authorities, the voluntary sector and others to promote good practice and policies designed to better protect our children and young people at the earliest stage, to change the behaviour that might cause harm to children and to make our communities safer.

Stop it Now! Scotland was established in 2008 and is funded by the Scottish Government.

Is e Stadaibh a-Nis E! Alba am prògram nàiseanta a tha ag amas air  dochann drabasta cloinne a bhacadh.

Tha sinn ag obair gus clann, òigridh agus coimhearsnachdan na h-Alba a dhèanamh nas sàbhailte tro bhith:

  • a’ sgaoileadh fiosrachadh mu dhochann drabasta cloinne agus mu eucoir feiseach
  • a’ brosnachadh cur-an-sàs nan coimhearsnachdan fhèin ann a bhith a’ bacadh dochann drabasta nam measg agus a’ dìon an cuid cloinne
  • a’ solarachadh ’s a’ gabhail pàirt ann am pròiseactan a bheir taic do phearsannan, buidhnean-gnìomha agus coimhearsnachdan ann a bhith a’ bacadh dochann drabasta cloinne
  • ag obair ann an com-pàirteachasan làidir le buidhnean ’s buidhnean-gnìomha eile gus Alba a dhèanamh nas sàbhailte.

Tha sinn gu mòr den bheachd gun urrainnear dochann drabasta cloinne a bhacadh agus gu bheil e mar fhiachaibh air inbhich an cùram airson sàbhailteachd cloinne a ghabhail orra fhèin, tro bhith a’ sireadh cobhair cho tràth is a ghabhas ma tha na smuaintean no an dol a-mach aca fhèin no aig daoine eile a’ cur dragh orra. Is e an dòigh as fheàrr a thèid seo a choileanadh inbhich a bhith furachail ris na comharran air dochann drabasta agus ris an t-seòrsa dol a-mach a dh’fhaodadh a bhith na chunnart do chloinn, agus fios a bhith aca càit am faigh iad taic agus comhairle.

Tha Stadaibh a-Nis E! Alba ag obair gu dlùth leis an Riaghaltas, a’ phoileas, ùghdarrasan ionadail, an roinn shaor-thoileach agus buidhnean eile, gus deagh chleachdadh agus polasaidhean a bhrosnachadh a tha air an dealbhadh los ar clann ’s ar n-òigridh a dhìon aig an ìre as tràithe, los an dol-a-mach a dh’fhaodadh cron a dhèanamh air cloinn is òigridh atharrachadh, agus los ar coimhearsnachdan a dhèanamh nas sàbhailte.

Stèidhicheadh Stadaibh a-Nis E! Alba ann an 2008, agus tha e air a mhaoineachadh le Riaghaltas na h-Alba.
