​What Is ABUSE?

 

Child abuse is any action by another person – adult or child – that causes significant harm to a child. It can be physical, sexual or emotional, but can just as often be about a lack of love, care and attention. We now know that neglect, whatever form it takes, can be just as damaging to a child as physical abuse.

An abused child invariably experiences more than one type of abuse, as well as other difficulties in their lives. It generally happens over a period of time, rather than being a one-off event. And we now know it can happens online.
