Child Neglect: An Introduction

29th January 2020 @ 1:30 pm - 4:30 pm GMT



Background: Neglect is the most common form of maltreatment suffered by children in the UK (NSPCC, 2014). The impact of neglect on children cannot be overestimated. Neglect causes great distress and harm to children and leads to poor health, educational and social outcomes in the short and long-term. In some cases, neglect will be a causal or contributory factor in childhood deaths.

  • Know how to recognise the key indicators of child neglect
