Professionals looking for advice
Are you a professional looking for advice?
The public expects all those who work with children and families to know how to protect youngsters from child sexual abuse and have all the answers. Stop it Now! knows that is not always the case.
Whether you are a teacher who has spotted inappropriate sexual behaviour in the classroom or a social worker with a particularly difficult case, the Stop it Now! Freephone, anonymous and confidential helpline is there for advice support and information.
We know it's not always easy
Working with people who have sexually harmed children or pose a risk to them is not always easy.
Similarly, working with children and their families where sexual abuse is an issue can be very demanding and cause anxiety for the professionals involved.
If you are working in the criminal justice system, health service or for children's services and need advice and support with a work related matter help is available from trained and experienced professionals who can offer you guidance and personal support.
And if you are a teacher, Scout leader, swimming coach, choir master or anyone who works with children and young people and you have spotted a difficult situation which you need advice on, Stop it Now! is here to help.
Call the Stop it Now! Freephone, anonymous and confidential helpline on 0808 1000 900 for advice, support and information.
You can message the helpline using our secure messaging service by clicking here. Our messaging service is not able to offer an immediate response due to high demand. We aim to respond to messages within 5-7 working days. If your enquiry is urgent please call the confidential helpline.

If you are worried about a child or young person who has been accessing inappropriate sexual material online, then take a look at our What's the problem? Parents Pack, a guide for parents and carers. It's for parents of children and young people who have got into trouble online either through 'sexting', accessing adult pornography, or viewing sexual images of children. It is designed to answer some of the immediate questions you may have after learning that something is happening, or has happened, in your child's online life.
You may also want to look at our Parents Protect! website for further advice on how to implement child safety plans in order to protect children from sexual harm.
