Get the facts and pass them on!
There are many myths and stereotypes surrounding the sexual abuse of children that actually get in the way of protecting children. By browsing this site and learning the facts around child sexual abuse – as well as what practical steps you can take to protect children – you are helping to ensure a safe childhood for the children in your life. You can also pass these on to your family, friends and colleagues.
To prevent child sexual abuse we need to start talking about preventing it. The media is full of stories about children being harmed, normally by a stranger, and the stories are created after the abuse has taken place. The reality is that the abuser is more often known to the victim. Talk to your family, friends and colleagues about what you are doing to protect children and ask them to think about what they can do. Take some resources to your school, faith group or community centre to start a discussion.
Use online networks to spread the word!
If you have your own website, you could add a link to this site or if you use Facebook or Twitter you can post the link there. Tell all your contacts about your ideas for prevention and what you are doing to protect children from harm. Help motivate others to do the same.
Attend an event!
Over the course of 2011-2013, Stop it Now! England will be running and attending various community events across the country to get some of our important messages out to communities. When we have something planned - details will be posted on our events page. If you know of an event that we should be attending, please use the contact form on the Home Page and let us know!
