Stop it Now! Scotland
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:-
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 Scottish 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. Currently we are funded by the Scottish Government
