What is Inform?
Inform is an educative course designed to offer information and support to the partners, relatives and close
friends of people who have been charged in relation to child pornography accessed via the Internet. 

Inform aims to providea ‘safe place’ to which people can bring their issues, problems and questions
and discuss them in an understanding and supportive environment. Each Inform group typically has 4-5
members.

What does Inform cover?

How much does Inform cost?

The Inform course runs over 5 weeks with each session lasting 2½ hours. Sessions are currently run in the evening. As a charity, we have to make a charge to help cover our costs. The cost to participants is £360 payable in advance. If you require a one-to-one programme, the cost is £480. If this is beyond your means, please let us know and we will try to explore top-up funding from other sources. 

Who runs Inform?
Course facilitators are all staff of the Lucy Faithfull Foundation, who are trained and experienced in working with family members or close friends of those who have been charged in relation to child pornography offences via the Internet.  Each Inform group has two facilitators, who are available for on-going support via the Stop it Now! Freephone Helpline (0808 1000 900).

Don’t worry….

•You won’t have to reveal your full identity to other participants or share personal and relationship details in the sessions.
•The information you share will remain confidential unless it raises concerns about a child at risk.
•Wherever possible we are keen to offer a Programme to your family member or friend to help them to understand their problematic Internet behaviour and learn how to manage it in the future.
•The sessions will provide a ‘safe’ forum for you to ask your own questions and, if you wish, explore issues relating to your own situation.
