The Lucy Faithfull Foundation

The internet plays a positive role in many aspects of young people’s lives, but it can also be used for inappropriate, risk-taking or illegal sexual behaviour. It can also be difficult for parents, carers, and professionals to know how to respond and support a child.  The Lucy Faithfull Foundation is the only UK-wide charity dedicated solely to preventing child sexual abuse.  For further information regarding the charity please click here
