What we all need to know to protect our children

Child sexual abuse happens in secret and most victims tell no one. The abuser is usually a family friend, neighbour, a member of the child’s family or someone working with children: he or she may be someone we know and love. This leaflet aims to provide the information we all need to recognise the warning signs of abuse and to build the confidence to do something about it. Plain English Campaign award winner December 2003.
