Stop it Now! UK and Ireland is a child sexual abuse prevention campaign and Helpline. It is run by the Lucy Faithfull Foundation, the only UK-wide child protection charity dedicated solely to reducing the risk of children being sexually abused.
We support adults to play their part in prevention through providing sound information, educating members of the public, training those who work with children and families and running our Freephone confidential Helpline.
Our Helpline is available to:
- adults worried about the sexual behaviour of other adults or children and young people
- those worried about their own sexual thoughts or behaviour towards children, including those with concerns about their online behaviour
- friends and relatives of people arrested for sexual offending, including internet offending
- any other adult with a concern about child sexual abuse - including survivors and professionals
We believe that child sexual abuse is preventable, not inevitable, and urge anyone with concerns about child sexual abuse to seek help. By working together we can prevent child sexual abuse.
Stop It Now! Helpline
The Helpline is available for anyone with concerns about child sexual abuse. Callers do not need to give identifying information. Since 2002 we have taken more than 65,000 calls from over 35,000 people. In the last year alone we helped more than 4,500 people.Learn more
