How we prevent child sexual abuse

We are at the forefront of work to prevent child sexual abuse. As a child protection charity, we campaign and raise awareness across the UK to help adults to do their part to stop child sexual abuse by addressing personal, family and community concerns.

Wherever we work, we build community strength and help families to know the steps to keep their children safe from sexual abuse.

How we prevent child sexual abuse

Our confidential helpline, live chat and secure messaging service are here for anyone with concerns about child sexual abuse and its prevention – whether they’re worried about their own thoughts, feelings and behaviour, or about another adult or young person.

Callers do not need to give identifying information, so can remain anonymous. We speak to thousands of people every year, and help them take action to protect children and young people from sexual abuse and exploitation.

We work across the UK

We work with politicians, the police, professionals and members of the public in Wales and in Scotland so that everyone knows what they can do to keep children safe.

We help people worried about themselves

We have online self-help resources for people concerned about their online behaviour, and for people concerned about their thoughts and behaviour towards children.

Our national campaign works to deter people from online offending, and so keeps children safe.

We support parents and families

Our Parents Protect website has support and information for parents, grandparents and carers who want to know what they can do to protect their children offline and online.
