Child Neglect Quiz
Test Your Awareness of Child Neglect
Child neglect is the most common form of child abuse in the UK, yet it often receives less attention than the other main categories of abuse (physical, emotional and sexual). Neglect can be defined as the failure to meet a child's need for love, care and safety, so much so that they're likely to experience significant short- or long-term harm as a result.
