Helplines and Websites for Supporting You and Your Child.

Through this page we intend to signpost families to the range of both local and national agencies available offering support and advice to parents and support for children. This page will be regularly updated to include up to date and relevant information.  

The NSPCC's Let’s Talk PANTS campaign aims to help parents start vital conversations about staying safe from sexual abuse with children aged eight and under. The campaign was created following research by the NSPCC uncovering many parents were worried that talking to their young children about sexual abuse would be scary and confusing. To combat these concerns, the NSPCC has created an activity pack and catchy song featuring cartoon dinosaur Pantosaurus. Focusing on keeping children safe without using the words sex or abuse, their hope is that this colourful approach will make it easier for parents to tackle the sensitive subject.
