Resources

We are committed to supporting families and professionals in order to keep children safe from harm.

Ensuring that parents and professionals have advice and information to help them prevent child sexual abuse both online and offline is more important than ever, as is ensuring that adults who are worried they may present a risk of sexual harm to children have access to support about how to control and manage their behaviour and make better choices.

You can download the resources below for free so that as many people as possible can get the information and help they need to prevent child sexual abuse. But because we have limited funds available to develop and print materials, we welcome any support to our work that you can give.

What we all need to know to protect our children

This leaflet aims to provide the information we all need to recognise the warning signs of abuse and to build the confidence to do something about it.
