Working with Internet (child pornography) offending
The Lucy Faithfull Foundation works with people who have committed offences on the Internet, particularly in relation to viewing, downloading and/or distributing indecent images of children. We also work with members of their family to help them address the questions and issues the behaviour of their loved one has raised.
Inform and Inform Plus

Securus is a computer monitoring service, administered by LFF, which allows people to use the Internet responsibly while capturing any illegal or potentially risky activity. This encourages users to stop and think about what they are doing online. For more information download our leaflet or contact our Internet Services Administrator on 01372 847160.
The Lucy Faithfull Foundation also manages the child sexual abuse prevention campaign Stop it Now! UK and Ireland. Along with producing literature and awareness raising materials such as posters and postcards, campaign staff carry out awareness raising sessions in schools, Children’s Centres and with community groups. A number of training days for professionals are also held each year. Visit www.stopitnow.org.uk for more information.
We also manage www.parentsprotect.co.uk – a child sexual abuse prevention and awareness website which helps parents and carers do the best they can to protect their children from sexual abuse. The site is a useful resource of information, guidance and resources.
As a charity, the Lucy Faithfull Foundation has to make a charge for some of our services to help us cover our costs. In some cases, we can offer subsidised sessions. Please contact us for further details.
