Sexual abuse of children occurs in every country across the world, yet it remains a largely hidden problem. It has profound and devastating long-term impacts on children’s physical and mental health and social wellbeing.

At Family for Every Child, most of our Members address child sexual abuse in their work, and its links to children’s care. In this first How We Care series we have worked with three of our Members to present the work they are doing to help combat child sexual abuse in their regions.
