Action for Children, in partnership with the University of Stirling, has published the second comprehensive annual review of child neglect in the UK.
Our report - The state of child neglect in the UK - reveals that nine out of ten teachers, police officers and social workers regularly meet children they believe are neglected. Yet as many as 40 per cent of these trained professionals feel powerless to intervene. Almost 6,000 people -- including the public, professionals and 27 local authorities -- took part in interviews, polls and focus groups for the study.
With 140 years of experience on the front line of neglect, we promise to work with children and with the Government as long as it takes to that ensure that children get the early help they need. Here's how you can help:
Project Reports on GlobalGiving are posted directly to globalgiving.org by Project Leaders as they are completed, generally every 3-4 months. To protect the integrity of these documents, GlobalGiving does not alter them; therefore you may find some language or formatting issues.
If you donate to this project or have donated to this project, you will get an e-mail when this project posts a report. You can also subscribe for reports via e-mail without donating or by subscribing to this project's RSS feed.
Combined with other sources of funding, this project raised enough money to fund the outlined activities and is no longer accepting donations.
