Professionals looking for advice?

We help professionals working in child sexual abuse prevention so that they’re well equipped to keep children safe.

The public expects everyone who works with children and families to know how to protect young people from sexual abuse and to have all the answers. We know that this isn’t always the case, so we try to help.

Anonymous helpline

Our anonymous and confidential Stop It Now helpline will help any member of the public or professional – call 0808 1000 900 for advice, support and information. If you’re not ready to speak to someone just yet, you can also use our live chat or secure email.
