Harmful Sexual Behaviour Prevention Toolkit

The Lucy Faithfull Foundation has produced this toolkit which may be used by parents/carers and professionals to help them be aware of the risks of harmful sexual behaviour in children and young people. The toolkit includes support, advice, information, and resources and links to useful organisations. It has been recommended by the Essex Head of Education Safeguarding and Wellbeing. This resource is designed for children of all ages, so we recommend that parents take time to look through for advice and tips that are appropriate to the age of their children.
