Child Abuse

23rd February 2017

Together, we can tackle child abuse is a Government campaign to raise awareness and encourage members of the public to report child abuse and neglect. 

Andrew Bridgen MP said:

“The campaign aims to encourage the public to report their concerns in order to get help to children more quickly. With this new campaign we aim to create a new social norm around reporting and tackle the barriers that stop people taking action.”

The Government’s core audience is parents aged 25-40. Research shows that this group is most likely to feel confident about reporting and can therefore be nudged into action. The campaign will serve as a reminder to professionals such as teachers and healthcare professionals who work with children, of their safeguarding responsibilities.

Research for this campaign has shown that if people feel they are part of their community’s response to child abuse and neglect, this reduces their fear of reporting and encourages them to report. Our messaging will therefore reassure the public that the information they give is usually part of the bigger picture. We want to reassure the public that anything they notice can help a child at risk and that ‘if they think it, report it’.
