#StopItNow campaign returns this March

posted by: Susan Mills

The Stop It Now campaign is  aimed at deterring online child sexual abuse. The campaign is a project of the Lucy Faithfull Foundation, the only UK-wide charity dedicated solely to preventing child sexual abuse.

In light of the vast scale of the problem of people viewing sexual images of children online, the campaign aims to raise awareness that viewing sexual images of under-18s is illegal, causes huge harm to children, and that there are serious consequences for the viewer including potential arrest, imprisonment and job loss. But there is confidential help available to stop via Stop It Now.

Last year’s campaign saw visits to the Stop It Now self-help website increase by 67% compared with the same period in the previous year.

The Stop It Now helpline (0808 1000 900) also offers help to people who are concerned about their own or someone else’s sexual thoughts or behaviours.  This includes adults worried about a loved one’s sexual behaviour towards children. It also includes anyone worried about their own sexual thoughts or behaviour towards children.

Further support is also available through:
