Stop It Now

Children are not the face of this pandemic. But they risk being among its biggest victims.

(United Nations, April 2020)

Children are more at risk of sexual harm than ever. They are isolated from traditional support networks and many are exposed to greater risks online or in their own homes. Pressures on social services mean that many children are falling through the cracks and abuse is going undetected.

In response to this, we at Stop It Now Scotland have created an Upstream Prevention pack designed to help keep children safe, using the knowledge and experience we have gained over the past 12 years of working to keep children safe from harm. These free resources are designed to be distributed to multiple audiences and across multiple platforms. The pack contains practical advice for professionals, individuals and families. If you wish to receive printed copies of any of these items, please get in touch with us via

The Corona Virus pandemic is encouraging us to find new and creative modes of distribution and sharing – if you have any ideas as to how we might be able to reach a wider audience, do not hesitate to get in touch. Additionally, if you know of other organisations or individuals out there that might benefit from this pack, please pass on the link ( or let us know so that we can reach out.  We will be campaigning about this pack on Facebook and Twitter, and we hope that you may be able to help us spread the word.

Stop It Now! Scotland is a child protection charity dedicated to preventing child sexual abuse. Since 2008 we have been providing confidential support services to individuals and families to protect the next child from harm. Together, we can prevent child sexual abuse.
