Shocking home office statistic

The NSPCC is focusing on trying to reduce physical abuse to children.  A shocking home office statistic is that a child is killed every 10 days in England and Wales.

Each year in the UK, of those children physically abused:

  • 379,000 are injured
  • 70,000 require medical attention
  • 2,800 are taken to Accident and Emergency

Only 10% of children who are physically abused appear on the child protection register.
