With various training options and helpful resources for staff, leaders, parents and communities, Safeguarding Children offer practical, evidence-based, frontline-tested solutions, specifically tailored for those with responsibility towards children.
Sadly, child abuse and neglect often happen within relationships of trust. It can happen anywhere — at home, in the community or in organisations — and regardless of a child’s age, gender, race, or ability. The perpetrators can be adults or even other children, and they’re usually someone the child knows and trusts.
Physical abuse is when someone purposefully hurts a child, like hitting, kicking, or shaking them, which can seriously harm the child’s health and development.
Emotional abuse is less visible but just as damaging. It’s stuff like constantly threatening, criticising, or ignoring a child, which can really mess with their emotional growth.
Sexual abuse involves forcing or tricking a child into sexual activities, even if there’s no physical contact, and whether or not the child knows what’s going on.
Neglect is failing to meet the needs of children and young people and not doing or providing the things they need to stay safe, be healthy and thrive.
Spiritual abuse involves any attempt to hurt, scare, or exert power and control over someone using religion, spirituality, or beliefs.
Keeping our children safe isn’t a job for ‘someone else’ – it’s down to every single one of us… we all have a role to play, and the time to act is now.
