NEW dates: Child sexual abuse prevention multi-agency webinar
We are excited to announce that new dates have been added to our free webinar series hosted by Stop It Now! Wales, in conjunction with The Lucy Faithfull Foundation.
Dates: 18 & 19 May and 16 & 22 June 2021.
Each ‘child sexual abuse prevention’ webinar involves two sessions (morning 10am-12pm and afternoon 1pm-3pm) and aims to help participants understand the issues surrounding child sexual abuse, the thought processes of perpetrators and the importance of our work; as well as exploring the topic of problematic sexual behaviour (PSB) in young children.
If you are interested in booking for any future courses or would like to learn more, please make sure you sign up to receive our newsletter.
Here in Wales, we have been faced with many challenges throughout the Covid-19 pandemic and, although restrictions are beginning to ease, we are ensuring to make sure that vulnerable children and families are kept safe from harm.
That is why, here at Stop It Now! Wales and The Lucy Faithfull Foundation, we are more dedicated than ever to help keep children safe and will continue to do everything we can to prevent child sexual abuse throughout our organisation.
A warm welcome to our new team member
Our team is continuing to grow, and we have successfully appointed a project worker in North Wales to support the delivery of our public education programme across Wales.
Please give a warm welcome to Daisy, who joins our team in Wales.
Our projects for parents, carers and at-risk families
We offer a range of public education sessions for parents, carers and professionals as part of our Welsh Government funded ‘Keeping Children Safe’ project. If you are interested in learning more about these sessions then please check out our flyers in English and Welsh.
Our Early Intervention and Parents Protect Plus projects provide support and intervention advice for vulnerable and at-risk families in Wales. Both of these programmes can be accessed on a referral basis – please look at our flyers, in English and Welsh, for details about how to refer a family or individual to either of these services.
Child sexual abuse prevention ad campaign
Last month, we ran a child sexual abuse prevention ad campaign, across radio, YouTube, Facebook and Twitter, specifically targeted a Welsh audience. The ads have been a huge success, sharing information on our services in both English and Welsh, with the aim of getting the public talking about child sexual abuse. During the campaign, we saw 1,624 users visiting the site from our ads, with 924 of those users being from Wales.
Train the trainer / Stop It Now! champions
We also deliver two half days or one full day “train the trainer” workshops to practitioners in a group setting. The workshops are suitable for professionals who support or work with families and children/young people so that they can deliver their own sessions or include our messages within their daily work. If you are interested in attending, please contact the team now to book a place for the workshop. We are able to offer these training events virtually if required.
Please get in touch if you want more information about our work.
