Support Parents Protect! by making a valuable donation
Every day, thousands of children across the UK suffer sexual abuse, most commonly at the hands of someone they know. Research suggests at least one in ten children aged 11-17 become victims.
Parents Protect! and the Stop it Now! campaign and Helpline are projects of the child protection charity the Lucy Faithfull Foundation, which works to prevent this abuse from happening in the first place – and to prevent it from happening again if it already has. (More about Lucy Faithfull Foundation and Stop it Now!)
With your generous help, we can continue our work to protect children from sexual abuse.
What your money will pay for:
While our work to protect children is wide and varied, here are some examples of the sorts of things your money could help pay for:
£10 could help pay for a Stop it Now! Helpline Operator to answer calls for an hour, ensuring those who need advice, information and support receive it. Our Stop it Now! Helpline is for all adults with concerns about child sexual abuse. It allows people to talk in confidence, often at times when they feel they have no one else to talk to.
£20 could help pay for 20 Parents Protect! Learning Programmes on disk so families who do not have internet access can watch the video. This 30 minute film shows how to create a family safety plan with simple steps that create safer environments for children.
£50 helps pay for a Stop it Now! Helpline caller to have a call-back with a specialist Lucy Faithfull Foundation practitioner. This service is available for those with particular needs and allows them to receive specialist, in-depth information, help and advice.
£300 pays for a child or young person with worrying sexual behaviour, as well as their family, to receive help from a specialist Lucy Faithfull Foundation practitioner. Families often turn to us after struggling to find help elsewhere.
