Thank you for visiting the Children on the Frontline website! We hope you enjoy browsing our website, and that you find a lot of useful information. We look forward to sharing our knowledge and experience in order to increase your awareness of the issues surrounding adult and child abuse and to help you get involved in charitable activities.

Child abuse is the physical, sexual or emotional maltreatment or neglect of a child or children. We define child maltreatment as any act or series of acts of commission or omission by a parent or other caregiver that results in harm, potential for harm, or threat of harm to a child.Child abuse can occur in a child's home, or in the organizations, schools or communities the child interacts with. There are four major categories of child abuse: neglect, physical abuse, psychological or emotional abuse, and sexual abuse.

Children on The Frontline works to raise awareness about those children who have and will be exposed to abuse and to instruct others to recognize the signs.

Additionally, a list of Sexual Assault Referral Centres (SARCs) can be found here. A SARC provides services to victims of rape or sexual assault regardless of whether the victim reports the offence to the police or not.
