Stop it now! Confidential Helpline 0808 1000 900

The Faithfull Papers

Our work gives a unique insight into how to prevent child sexual abuse and we want to share our research and knowledge to best protect children. One way of doing this is through our series of Faithfull Papers.

Our Stop It Now! helpline is the largest specialist helpline of its kind in the world and we gain new insights and data every day by listening and responding to those seeking help. Our programmes, assessments and interventions help prevent offending by working with adults and young people who have harmed children or who are at risk of doing so.

New threats to children emerge, and new responses for protection and prevention are required and created. As pioneers in our field, we develop and evaluate new responses; just as we are alert to developments from the UK and further afield that we can learn from.

Confidential support to prevent child sexual abuse: A review of the first 12 months of live chat on the Stop It Now! UK and Ireland helpline

24 March 2022

We launched a live chat service in September 2020, so that people could get support in a way that suited them. We helped people through nearly 900 chats and found the service to be favoured by people aged 21 and younger and people who haven’t been arrested – key groups to reach with support.
