Get help, support and advice

As caring adults we are aware of so much that affects the lives of our children. If we notice changes in our children's attitudes and behaviour that might mean that something is wrong we need to know where we can discuss our concerns and get help straight away, rather than feeling that we don’t know what to do. Getting help when we know or suspect a child is being sexually abused or exploited may not feel easy, but there is help available.

Stop it Now! Helpline - The Helpline offers confidential information, advice and support to those with concerns around child sexual abuse and sexual exploitation.
