People who physically abuse children can be anyone who comes into contact with a child. They can be teachers, next door neighbours or a member of the family. In fact, a person who abuses a child is often closely related to the child: it is very rarely a stranger.


This course is intended for everyone who works with or has contact with children, young people and their families.
