StopSO UK : Specialist Treatment Organisation for the Prevention of Sexual Offending is an organisation that works with those at risk of sexual offending or reoffending, to enable them to stop acting out, thus reducing the risk to society and lessening the number of victims. We are also work with the families of sex offenders, who also have to come to terms with being related to a sex offender.
Sex offenders are often treated as the lowest of the low in our modern society. It is very hard for this client group to be able to access professional support and help. Practically no NHS services are available for this group. Most therapists do not want to work with these clients. At StopSO UK we want to enable sex offenders, or those who are acting out sexually, and those who have not acted out but have ‘troubling thoughts’ to be able to access experienced willing & able therapists. Many sex offenders contact us by searching for ‘sex offender help’ in their search engine, which brings up the StopSO website.
