The Stop It Now! UK and Ireland helpline
Coronavirus (Covid-19) update: we’re still open and taking calls and messages as usual.
If you’re worried about child sexual abuse, you can talk to us.
If you’re worried about your own thoughts, feelings and behaviour, or about another adult or young person, we can help, and we won’t judge.
You do not need to give identifying information, so can remain anonymous. Our experienced advisors speak to thousands of people every year, helping them take action to protect children and young people from sexual abuse and exploitation.
Help us prevent child sexual abuse.

Who we help
As a child protection charity, we work to prevent child sexual abuse by making sure adults know what they can do to keep children safe. Through our anonymous and confidential online advice and self-help resources, we can help you:
- if you’re worried about your own thoughts or behaviour
- if you’re worried about another adult’s behaviour
- if you’re worried about a child or young person’s behaviour
- if you want information on how to keep children safe offline and online.
The helpline is confidential and you don’t have to give us your full name or any other details that will identify you. But if you do, and then you give us information that identifies a child who has been – or is at risk of being – abused, or any information which may suggest that any other person is at risk of harm, then we will pass that information on to the appropriate agencies. We will also pass on details of any criminal offence committed.
