Service summary

Stop It Now!

Stop It Now! is a child sexual abuse prevention campaign and helpline.
It is run by The Lucy Faithfull Foundation, the only UK-wide child protection charity dedicated solely to preventing child sexual abuse.

We support adults to play their part in prevention through providing sound information, educating members of the public, training those who work with children and families, and running our confidential and anonymous helpline.

Our helpline is available to:
- adults worried about the sexual behaviour of other adults or children and young people
- people worried about their own sexual thoughts or behaviour towards children, including those with concerns about their online behaviour
- friends and relatives of people arrested for sexual offending, including internet offending
- any other adult with a concern about child sexual abuse - including survivors and professionals

We believe that child sexual abuse is preventable, not inevitable, and urge anyone with concerns about child sexual abuse to seek help. By working together we can prevent child sexual abuse.
THE STOP IT NOW! HELPLINE - 0808 1000 900

The Stop It Now! helpline is available for anyone with concerns about child sexual abuse. Callers do not need to give identifying information, so can remain anonymous. We speak to thousands of people every year, and help them take action to protect children and young people from sexual abuse and exploitation.

Opening hours: 9.00am - 9.00pm Mondays to Thursdays and 9.00am - 5.00pm Fridays, and closed on weekends and bank holidays.
