Inform - for families of people who have offended online

Our Inform programme is for partners, relatives and friends of anyone who has been arrested, cautioned or convicted for internet offences involving indecent images of children or sexual communication with children.

We understand the devastating impact that sexual offending can have on families. Inform provides a safe, supportive and non-judgemental space. Here, participants can share and explore the emotional and practical impact, alongside those who are dealing with similar traumatic issues.

Our programmes are run by specialist and experienced staff, and each group is made up of people affected by online sexual offending. The programme gives factual information about all aspects of online sexual offending, so that participants have more understanding of their loved one’s offending and greater awareness of what to expect at different stages of the criminal justice process.  

What does inform include?

The programme covers a wide range of information:

Participants will receive a completion letter at the end of the programme, which confirms their attendance and outlines the content of the programme. Information shared during sessions remains confidential and won't be passed on unless:

How does inform work?

Each programme runs for 5 sessions lasting up to two and a half hours each, with between 4 and 6 participants in a group. It might be possible for us to deliver a programme on a one-to-one basis, or to make adjustments to suit a person’s individual needs.

This course is provided free of charge, although we encourage donations from participants to help support the work we do with families.

What previous participants have said

“I am very pleased that I did the Inform course. I now understand a lot more. The Foundation has been brilliant I am so pleased that I picked up the phone. I now don't feel so alone.”
“Just to say, LFF has been brilliant and so supportive that I've felt less isolated and anxious over the past month or so. Having various processes explained has given me more confidence to talk openly about it and has encouraged more discussions between my partner and I regarding disclosure. Just having someone who completely understands what's going on fully is a great help... so really, thank you.”
“Just a very big thank you to the Lucy Faithfull Foundation. I really don't know where I'd be without the support I've had.”
