The NSPCC states online (2018) that ‘there were over 58,000 children identified as needing protection from abuse in the UK in 2016’, and in 2016 the first Office of National Statistics Survey of its kind ‘showed that 9% of adults aged 16 to 59 had experienced psychological abuse, 7% physical abuse, 7% sexual assault and 8% witnessed domestic violence or abuse in the home.’

Spotting signs of abuse early is very important in order to protect the minor and prevent future abuse by the abuser/s. Therefore adults working in positions of trust should gain extensive safeguarding awareness in order to create and actively promote an environment that is safe for children.
