Preventing child sexual abuse

Stop It Now! is a project of the child protection charity, The Lucy Faithfull Foundation – the only UK-wide charity dedicated solely to tackling child sexual abuse.

Every day, children and young people across the UK suffer sexual abuse, most commonly at the hands of someone they know. Latest research suggests at least one in six children aged 11-17 become victims.

We work to prevent abuse from happening in the first place – and to prevent it from happening again if it already has.

Talk to us

Our confidential helpline (0808 1000 900) is available for anyone with concerns about child sexual abuse. 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.
