No Sex Please We’re Children

Poster text reads: Childhood should be a time of excitement when children can discover the world and develop at their own pace. Sadly, too many are denied this opportunity because they are sexually abused. In most cases the abuser is someone the child knows and trusts, maybe a parent, baby-sitter or neighbour. But something can be done - it is the responsibility of all adults to prevent sexual abuse by recognising the signs of abusive behaviour at an early stage and taking action to protect children. If you suspect that someone you know is sexually abusing a child, or if you are worried about your own thoughts or behaviour towards children ring the Stop it Now! Freephone helpline now for confidential advice.

Just Good Friends?

If you are concerned that a child's behaviour may be inappropriate or abusive, or you are worried about your own thoughts or behaviour towards children, ring the Stop it Now!
