NSPCC services to prevent child sexual abuse
The NSPCC provides therapeutic services for children and young people who have been sexually abused and preventative services for adults and young people whose sexual behaviour poses a risk to children.
The services form part of the NSPCC's strategy to generate evidence on what works in preventing child sexual abuse
with the aim of sharing this learning to protect as many children as possible.The NSPCC services on child sexual abuse are:
A new guide to help professionals work therapeutically with sexually abused children and young people and their safe (non-abusing) carers.
An evaluation of a new manual 'Change for good' for professionals to deliver a structured treatment programme for children and young people with harmful sexual behaviour.
A service providing intensive therapy to children and young people with serious harmful sexual behaviour.
A new guide for assessing the sexual risk posed by known or alleged adult male sex offenders who are not in the criminal justice system and for providing treatment to contain and reduce the risk.
A partnership project with the probation service to provide a 24-hour telephone line to help prevent child sex offenders from committing more offences against children.
