LTFI-LD is based on Letting the Future In (LTFI), a service which supports children who have experienced sexual abuse. LTFI-LD has less emphasis on cognitive behavioural theory than LTFI and more focus on creative therapies such as artwork, drama and therapeutic play. LTFI-LD has been piloted in four NSPCC teams.

The University of Bristol conducted a formative evaluation of the pilot to inform the ongoing development of LTFI-LD and plans to roll out the service to a greater number of teams in the future.
