Services provided:

Stop it Now! Scotland is the national programme for the prevention of child sexual abuse.

They work to make Scotland’s children and young people, and communities, safer by:-

  • providing information about child sexual abuse and sex offending
  • promoting the engagement of communities in preventing sexual abuse and protecting children
  • providing and participating in projects to help individuals, agencies and communities prevent child sexual abuse
  • working in strong partnerships with other agencies and organisations to make Scotland safer.

Stop it Now Scotland believes that child sexual abuse is preventable and that adults must take responsibility for protecting children by seeking early help when they are concerned about their own thoughts or behaviour or that of other people. This can be best achieved when adults are alert to the signs of child sexual abuse and the behaviour that might pose a risk to children and when they know where they can seek help and advice.

If your enquiry is urgent, please call the confidential Helpline – 0808 1000 900.

Opening hours:

The helpline can be accessed from 9.00am – 9.00pm, Mondays to Thursdays and on Fridays from 9.00am – 7.00pm.
