We are dedicated to protecting children from sexual abuse. Through the findings of our global, evidence-based research, we develop abuse prevention materials and age-appropriate curriculums. Our aim is to educate and empower children, parents, and teachers to prevent sexual abuse from happening.



Protect Five Million Children from Sexual Abuse
By lending your support and signing this petition
we can pressure the government to empower all teachers through accredited child sexual abuse prevention training so they have the tools and the know how to recognize the tell-tale signs in the battle against child sexual abuse. We can all play a part in protecting our children. Child sexual abuse is a sad reality for too many children across our country, with at least ONE IN SIX estimated to experience sexual abuse before the AGE OF 16, that is the equivalent of THREE CHILDREN IN EVERY CLASSROOM. #PreventEd #FiveMillionChildrenSafe #NNECA”


The National Network to End Child Abuse (NNECA) was established in 2012 when our founder, Suhail Hanif was frustrated with the lack of change in the areas of child sexual abuse and exploitation. Suhail believes that “one child is one child too many” and until we protect every last child we will continue to exist. We’re facing nothing short of a child sexual abuse epidemic. Suhail believes schools must adopt a ‘whole-school’ approach to child sexual abuse, meaning every teacher, every staff member, every child and every parent are empowered and equipped with the relevant age-appropriate prevention training to identify the signs of abuse, and possess the knowledge for next steps.

Experts agree there could be as many as 11 million victims of sexual abuse in the UK constituting a “national epidemic,” due to intra-familial abuse the true scale is unknown, as most incidents remain hidden and go unreported.
