Stop it Now!

Stop it Now is a Child Protection Campaign run by the Lucy Faithfull Foundation, the only UK-wide charity focussed solely on the risk of children being sexually abused.

Please take a couple of minutes, to watch Stop it Now’s short film which illustrates:

    • viewing / sharing a sexual image of someone under 18 is illegal
    • the experience is extremely harmful to the children involved
    • the consequences can be devastating
    • there is help to stop

You can also view the Stop it Now! presentation for further info on illegal images of children at http://get-help.stopitnow.org.uk/
