This child sexual abuse awareness and prevention website was created by the child sexual abuse prevention campaign, Stop it Now! UK and Ireland and the Lucy Faithfull Foundation (LFF). LFF is a child protection charity which manages Stop it Now! and is supported by an alliance of voluntary and statutory sector partners.
Stop it Now! UK and Ireland - www.stopitnow.org.uk
It does this through:
- the establishment of national and regional projects based on partnerships between the local community and the statutory and voluntary agencies
- the dissemination of information
- the provision of a confidential helpline and email service
Stop it Now! believes sexual abuse is preventable and gives adults the information they need to protect children effectively whilst urging abusers and potential abusers to seek help. Stop it Now! encourages adults to create a society that no longer tolerates the sexual abuse of children.
Stop it Now! Funding
The Stop it Now! Helpline is funded by the Public Protection and Mental Health Group in the National Offender Management Service of the Ministry of Justice, Lucy Faithfull Foundation, charitable trusts and donors.
The Stop it Now! Campaigns in Scotland and Wales receive funding from Scottish Government and Welsh Assembly Government as well as charitable trusts and donors. There is no current funding in England.
