Supporting Neglected Children



Child neglect is an ongoing failure to provide the right care and attention to a child's needs, including enough food, clean clothes, safety and security, warmth and love.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Serious neglect can kill; in the UK, neglect is the most common form of child abuse; 1/3 of police and social workers feel "powerless" to stop it; 1 million neglected children have parents who were also victims of childhood neglect; Neglect can lead to loneliness, isolation, low self-esteem and poor health. Studies suggest that up to 10% of all children in Britain are neglected. That's more than twice the number of children born in the UK in 2007.

How will this project solve this problem?

No child should be neglected. That's why we're running a three-year appeal to make people wake up to neglect. We're raising desperately needed money to develop targeted, effective initiatives that tackle the key causes of neglect.

Potential Long Term Impact

We are developing a UK neglect intervention project with the University of Salford to help better identify neglect and stop it as early as possible.
