What is Child Abuse?

Child Abuse

Child abuse can mean a lot of different things such as neglect, physical, emotional or sexual abuse.  It’s not always easy to know if you or someone you know is being abused. But the important thing to remember is that no-one has the right to hurt you or make you do anything that feels wrong.  If you think you are being abused or you are concerned for someone else, speak to an adult you trust.  You can call and speak to a social worker or contact Childline.
