The Lucy Faithfull Foundation and disclaimer

This website has been developed by child protection charity, The Lucy Faithfull Foundation, the only UK-wide charity focused solely on reducing the risk of children being sexually abused.

The charity was founded by the late Baroness Lucy Faithfull, a 20th century pioneer in the field of child protection. The Foundation has 25 years' experience working with people who are sexually attracted to children, helping them to manage their behaviour so as to reduce the risk of children being sexually abused. Its work is pioneering and is highly regarded by childcare professionals both in the UK and internationally for the lead it takes in developing strategies to prevent children from being sexually abused.
