Safeguarding & promoting the wellbeing of children in need

Review to draw together data on safeguarding children and to compare the position of England with that in other countries

Phase two

The study builds on work undertaken by the research team to explore what data are published internationally on safeguarding children from physical abuse, sexual abuse, emotional abuse, neglect and exposure to intimate partner violence and from child death and injury.

Aggregate administrative data on child maltreatment in England, Australia, Norway and the USA have been analysed to examine changes in the recognition of, and responses to, abuse and neglect over time.
