Help spread prevention messages

Get the facts and pass them on!

There are many myths and stereotypes surrounding the sexual abuse of children that actually get in the way of protecting children. By learning the facts around child sexual abuse – as well as what practical steps you can take to protect children – you are helping to ensure a safe childhood for the children in your life. You can also pass these on to your family, friends and colleagues. Visit www.parentsprotect.co.uk for information.

Use our resources

We have a number of resources which you can help distribute, from posters and booklets to small helpline number business cards. Visit our resources page for more details.

Our resources are free to download, and we want to continue to provide free information and research to help adults, parents and carers protect children from harm. However, as a charity we have limited funds available to develop and print materials and we welcome support from individuals. If you are interested in making a donation to help support our work please follow this link.

Start talking!

To prevent child sexual abuse we need to start talking about preventing it. The media is full of stories about children being harmed, normally by a stranger, and the stories are created after the abuse has taken place. The reality is that the abuser is more often known to the victim. Talk to your family, friends and colleagues about what you are doing to protect children and ask them to think about what they can do. Take some resources to your school, faith group or community centre to start a discussion.

Use online networks to spread the word!
