Stop Abuse Together Campaign
It is estimated that one in ten children in England and Wales will experience sexual abuse before they turn sixteen. The majority of these children will not tell anyone at the time of their experiences.
On 13 January 2022, the UK Government launched the Stop Abuse Together campaign. The campaign aims to empower parents and carers to take steps to help keep their children safe from abuse.
The website enables parents to:
- Learn about the potential signs of abuse
- Build trust by speaking to their children regularly, which can help prevent abuse
- Find further support, including through theNSPCC helpline (0808 800 5000)
All children have a right to be safe from sexual abuse, and we all have a role to play in keeping them safe. Let’s #StopAbuseTogether.
