Resources and helplineĀ for child sexual abuse (CSA)

The government wants to ensure that the public and professionals are aware of the resources and helplines they can access to help them prevent CSA. There is support available through the Lucy Faithfull Foundation, such as:

  • A confidential helpline (Stop It Now! – 0808 1000 900) for anyone who is concerned about their own behaviour or the behaviour of others - this can be accessed by any member of the public or by professionals who need advice on child sexual abuse risk whether they are concerned about the behaviour of an adult or someone under-18. There is a secure messaging service available.

  • Information and advice is available on child sexual abuse through the Stop It Now! website.

There are also resources specifically for children, young people, parents and carers:

  • The Child Exploitation and Online Protection Command Centre (CEOP) have just launched a campaign (#OnlineSafetyAtHome) promoting their resources on preventing all forms of online child sexual abuse; this includes resources for all age groups and for those concerned about sexting, visit the Think U Know website.

  • There are resources for parents on the NSPCC website about online safety and all forms of child sexual abuse.
