Join The Fight To Prevent Child Abuse And Neglect
One child is abused or neglected every 11 minutes in Australia, a fact that is heartbreaking. As it is one of the nation’s most significant and misunderstood social issues, all of us have to be more sensitive, proactive and diligent to prevent child abuse and neglect.
From physical, sexual, emotional and verbal, child abuse and neglect come in all forms. Unfortunately, too often, it happens in the child’s own homes and by someone they know or trust. Many more cases go unreported due to fear, lack of support from family members and understandably so, the victims’ distrust of other people.
Each of us has the responsibility to protect our children. How we treat these youngsters will be the basis of how they see the world and how they will live their own lives.
