What is abuse?

Click to open. Click to close.

Abuse (also called Significant Harm), comes in many forms and can happen to any child or young person at any age. Abusers can be adults but not just parents or carers, abuse often occurs within a relationship of trust e.g. a teacher, carer, family friend or youth leader.

The abuse can also come from your peers and even people you consider to be friends or are in a relationship with. It can be physical, sexual or emotional, but can just as often be about a lack of love, care and attention. We know that neglect, whatever form it takes, can be just as damaging to a child or young person as physical abuse.
