What is child abuse?

Child abuse is when a child is intentionally harmed by an adult or another child - it can be over some time but can also be a one-off action. It can be physical, sexual or emotional and it can happen in person or online. It can also be a lack of love, care and attention - this is neglect.

You can contact the NSPCC Helpline by calling 0808 800 5000.
