Introduction to the Get the Facts section

We've created this Get the Facts section of the website so you can gain a good understanding of the following issues:

Terminology used when referring to sexual interests

Whether paraphilias can be treated

Whether it is possible to change sexual thoughts

What treatment involves

Whether treatment is needed for those who have not offended

Whether it is illegal to be a paedophile.

A second Get the Facts section then looks at what the law says about sexual offences against children. It also looks at the various stages of the Criminal Justice System likely to be encountered by those arrested on suspicion of having committed a sexual offence against a child.

You can visit any of these pages via the navigation bar on the left-hand side of this page.
