Stop it Now! UK & Ireland

Stop it Now! England works across the country to ensure that parents, carers and professionals are as best placed as they can be to protect children from sexual abuse.

We believe that child sexual abuse is preventable and that all adults have a role to play in protecting children from sexual harm. This can be best achieved when adults are alert to the signs of child sexual abuse, including the behaviour that someone who might pose a risk to children can display, and knowing where they can seek help and advice.

We work closely with local authorities, LSCBs, police, the government, the voluntary sector and others.
