How Your Money Is Spent
Contributing to the protection of children and young people
Each and every donation is vital to us and our work to prevent child sexual abuse. Every gift, large and small, helps us achieve our vision of a world in which children's right to live free from abuse and exploitation becomes a reality.
When you donate to us if you know which project or aspect of our work you would like it to be assigned to, you can let us know, otherwise, we will assign it to the area with the greatest need at the time.
While our work to protect children is wide and varied, here are some examples of the sorts of things your money could help pay for:
£5 could help pay for printed materials for the children, parents and teachers we work with in schools on Internet Safety. These sessions help adults understand what they can do to help keep children safe online and teach children how to keep themselves and their friends safe.
£10 could help pay for a Helpline Operator to answer calls for an hour, ensuring those who need advice, information and support receive it. Our Stop it Now! Helpline is for all adults with concerns about child sexual abuse. It allows people to talk in confidence, often at times when they feel they have no one else to talk to.
£20 could help pay for 20 Parents Protect! Learning Programmes on disk so families with limited or unreliable internet access can watch the video. This 30 minute film shows how to create a family safety plan with simple steps that create safer environments for children.
£50 helps pay for a Stop it Now! Helpline caller to have a call-back with a specialist Lucy Faithfull Foundation practitioner. This service is available for those with particular needs and allows them to receive specialist, in-depth information, help and advice.
£150 helps fund a place on our educative course for friends and relatives of internet offenders (Inform). This allows people to get the support, information and advice they need to protect children.
£150 would enable us to deliver a Parents Protect! workshop to a group of parents and carers in a community near you! These educational sessions raise awareness of child sexual abuse and provide positive messages about what can be done to protect children. They focus on dispelling common myths about child sex offenders while at the same time arming parents and carers with sound information that will help them keep their children safe.
£300 pays for a child or young person with worrying sexual behaviour, as well as their family, to receive help from a specialist Lucy Faithfull Foundation practitioner. Families often turn to us after struggling to find help elsewhere.
£700 allows an internet offender with limited means to attend our ten week Internet Offending educational course (Inform+), which is designed to help offenders understand and manage their behaviour, helping to prevent further offending and reduce the risks to children.
Our strategic plan 2016-2019 outlines how we plan to achieve our mission of preventing the sexual abuse of children and young people by working with protective adults, those affected by abuse and those perpetrating it, including young people with harmful sexual behaviour. We are committed to using our expert knowledge to impact on public policy, and to educate families, professionals and the public. We help children and young people to stay safe in all our work.
We seek to confront the risk of abuse, and to make children safe, by implementing five key objectives as part of our strategic plan over the coming years.Read More
