Child protection refers to the prevention and response to abuse, violence, exploitation and neglect of children in all contexts.
Children are vulnerable to mistreatment, exploitation, discrimination and violence. Children will be able to grow safely with efficient and equal child protection.
Child protection aims to prevent violence, abuse and exploitation, and ensure that children have access to protection services by establishing or supporting national and community-level child protection systems.
Child abuse usually happens where children are thought to be safe, and the abusers are adults they are dependent to, such as their family members, teachers, or nursery workers.
If adults are not properly informed, children will be at risk.
Child protection is a key part of the safeguarding process focusing on protecting children suffering or likely to suffer harm. Regardless of the children's age, disability, gender, sexual orientation, race, religion or belief, every child has an equal right of protection from harm.
Child abuse has many forms. It is not just physical, it can also be sexual or emotional. It is a deliberate act of ill-treatment that can harm or is likely to harm a child or young person's safety, wellbeing and development. This includes neglect.
According to UNICEF, harmful practices like child marriage and female genital mutilation are discriminatory practices committed regularly for so long that societies have begun to consider them acceptable.
Child abuse can be physical, emotional, sexual, exploitation as well as grooming. Child neglect is failing to meet a child's basic needs and failing to provide proper care.
With respect to human services, prevention typically consists of methods or activities that seek to reduce or deter specific or predictable problems, protect the current state of well-being, or promote desired outcomes or behaviors.
Prevention refers to activities that stop an action or behaviour or preventive activities that promote a positive action or behaviour to reduce risk factors and promote protective factors to ensure the wellbeing of children and their families.
Not all signs of child abuse are obvious. Ignoring a child's needs, placing and exposing them in unsupervised, dangerous and sexual situations, or making them feel worthless can leave deep, lasting physical and emotional scars on children. By understanding the problem as early as possible, both the child and the abuser can get the help they need.
