Share your thoughts on whether a new survey to measure the current prevalence of child abuse in the UK could be successful.

It is unknown how many children are experiencing abuse today as there is no single source reporting across the UK. Vital statistics measuring the current prevalence of child abuse can help to inform policy makers, service providers and practitioners, in doing so this information can be used to help inform practice, improve victims’ experiences of services and reduce the prevalence of child abuse.
