To support the Scouts Yellow Card there is training available from Stop It Now!
Stop It Now! Wales is a child sexual abuse prevention project run by The Lucy Faithfull Foundation, a child protection charity.
Since 2008, we’ve been working across Wales to make sure children and young people are protected from adverse childhood experiences by preventing child sexual abuse and exploitation. Stop It Now! Wales works in partnership with the Welsh Government to make children, young people and communities safer.
We also offer a Train the Trainer module/ If you would like to find out more about Train the Trainer, please get in touch.
Our public sessions include:
A session for parents/carers on the facts around child sexual abuse and our responsibility to prevent it. The session can be tailored with information to support families of children with additional needs.
A session for professionals on the facts around child sexual abuse and our workplace responsibility to prevent abuse and support families to keep their children safe.
A session on issues of internet safety and protecting children and young people from abuse online including the impact on teenage brain development and mental health, an overview of the law in Wales and how to access help and support.
Understanding Harmful Sexual Behaviour
A session on understanding expected developmental healthy behaviours and inappropriate behaviour, how they can cause sexual harm or increase a child’s vulnerability, and effective ways of engaging children and young people to speak about possible abuse or harmful sexual behaviour.
Child Sexual Exploitation Awareness
A session giving awareness of how child sexual exploitation can happen, what the risks to children and young people are and what action can be taken, incorporating emerging themes such as county lines and criminal exploitation.
