Child abuse is a term used to describe a range of ways in which people, usually adults, harm children and young people. Often the adult is someone known and trusted by the child or young person, such as a parent or a relative. The abuse can be physical injury, sexual abuse, emotional harm or neglect.
REMEMBER ABUSE IS NEVER YOUR FAULT.
