NOTA is the National Organisation for the Treatment of Abusers, and is a registered charity. Inaugurated as a National Organisation in 1991, NOTA grew from a regional network in the North West of England. Membership is open to any professional whose work concerns intervention with sexually aggressive individuals regardless of their age, race, gender or sexual preference. With a growing multi-disciplinary membership comprised of practitioners, managers and policy makers from the public, private and voluntary sectors, NOTA is able to bring a wide variety of perspectives to intervention with sexual aggressors.
