Safe Guarding Children

Worried about a child?

Cruelty to children or child abuse is behaviour that causes significant harm to a child.  It also includes when someone who knowingly fails to prevent serious harm to a child. 

Only a small number of child abuse cases are carried out by a stranger, it is far more likely that the abuser is someone known to the child or a family member - even someone close who you would expect to trust! 

Abuse happens in all walks of life, but children growing up in a violent home or one where the parents/carers misuse drugs or alcohol are particularly at risk.

Types of cruelty

A child who is being abused may experience more than one type of cruelty.  Abuse can be physical(e.g. inflicting pain), sexual (e.g. direct or indirect), or emotional (e.g. humiliating them).  It can be in the form of neglectdiscriminationharassment or bullying.

What children and young people can do

  • Stay safe both inside and outside the home.
  • Know their full name, address and telephone number.
  • Always ask a parent/carer before going off with anyone.
  • You need never doing anything you don't want with an adult or child, even if you know them.
  • Children should know they can tell a trusted adult about abuse or if they are concerned about another person being abused.
