End Child Sexual Abuse Foundation offers a variety of services: the Hugline hotline, which provides information related to child sexual abuse as well as a listening ear for callers; psychologist referrals for victims and their families; educational workshops for parents and teachers that raise awareness about the issue; and a Leisure and Cultural Services Department-funded corner at Sha Tin Public Library dedicated to research materials about the topic.
In addition, the foundation commissions and publishes academic research further investigating the issue.
It also offers sex education programmes, which aim to educate primary and secondary school students about sexual issues and how to protect themselves against abuse. The programmes take an interactive, multimedia approach, with two mobile classrooms touring primary schools.
A version of the programme for students with learning disabilities was launched in 2008. Most of the foundation’s workshops and educational programmes are in Cantonese.
