Emails are anonymised to preserve confidentiality. Due to high demand for this service, we aim to respond within 7 working days. Over the Christmas period, all emails sent from the 21st of December will be responded to after the 2nd of January.
Please read our confidentiality statement below before contacting us. And please note that e-mails sent to any other email address are not confidential.
Our telephone helpline offers a confidential service for people seeking advice and support. This means that when contacting us you do not have to give any identifying information such as address, telephone number or last name.
However, if you do give us identifying information and we are concerned that a child is at risk or a criminal offence has been committed which the police may not be aware of, we will have to pass on that information to the appropriate agencies.
Stop it Now! Scotland
Stop It Now! Scotland is our child sexual abuse prevention project in Scotland. We work to build public confidence in recognising and responding to concerns about the sexual abuse and exploitation of children.
We also provide support services to individuals and their families with problematic sexual thoughts and those who may be at risk of sexual offending. This includes those who are under investigation for internet offences. We believe that this is a critical part of preventing child sexual abuse. We also support friends and family members of individuals who are at risk of sexual offending.
Our goal is to work towards a Scotland where child sexual abuse is eradicated.
If you are based in Scotland we can be contacted on 0131 556 3535 during office hours. You can leave a message for a call-back if you want. You can also email: firstname.lastname@example.org
