We are the only UK-wide charity dedicated solely to tackling child sexual abuse. We work to prevent abuse from happening in the first place - and to prevent it from happening again if it already has.
We work with all those affected by abuse including adult male and female abusers; young people with harmful sexual behaviour; children with concerning sexual behaviours; victims of abuse and other family members. But we also work in families and with adults and young people where there has been no abuse, to help them keep themselves and others as safe as possible.
Our vision is is a world in which children's right to live free from sexual abuse and exploitation becomes a reality. Since 1992 we've been at the forefront of innovative services working with adults to keep children safe.
