Serious cases of child abuse reported by the Council of Elders have increased by almost one-fifth over the past year, according to new figures.
According to the Local Government Association (LGA), in 2020/21 there were 536 reported serious incidents in England, up 19% from the previous year and 41% from five years ago.
As in previous years, children under the age of one remain the most dangerous, with the highest proportion of notifications submitted (36%). Last year, 191 incidents were reported in infants under 1 year of age. Reports of child deaths rose 19 percent to 223 notifications.
The LGA, represented by the Council of Wales, England, is extremely concerned about the safety of children in the face of additional pressure on families during the epidemic, and acts of violence are likely to be invisible during a series of closed-door blockades.
The President of the LGA Children and Youth Council, Claire Antoinette Bremble, said:
“Supporting and protecting vulnerable children is one of the most important roles played by counselors who want to ensure the safety, love and development of all children, so this increase in alerts about serious incidents is particularly alarming and a huge cause for concern.”
“The epidemic has put additional pressure on families, particularly those living in difficult circumstances, which can lead to harmful acts of child abuse or neglect. The councils work hard with their partners to identify this and provide the necessary assistance to the children, but the child welfare services may be funded to meet this need. ”
Despite pressures on funding, the councils have sought to protect child protection budgets by investing an additional 1 1.1 billion over the past two years, diverting funding from other local services.
Despite these efforts, the growing demand for maintenance services means that councils still exceeded their սոցիալական 832 million երեխաների երեխաների սոցիալական երեխաների երեխաների երեխաների երեխաների երեխաների երեխաների երեխաների 32 32 32 32 32 32 32 32 32 32 32 32 32 32 32 32 32 32 32 32 32 32 32 32 32 32 32 32 32 32 32 32
According to the LGA, this is clear evidence that the forthcoming spending review is urgently needed to make greater investments in children’s social care. This includes sufficient funding to provide preventive և first aid services to help avoid situations that could escalate into child և youth abuse և harm.
The LGA repeated its call in 2010. to recover 1. 1.7 billion withdrawn from an early intervention grant. The association also calls for the development of a Whitehall cross-border strategy that puts children, young people at the heart of recovery, provides adequate local security network resources, and is well-organized.
It says the Government’s independent review of child social care is a vital opportunity to help provide adequate resources to provide adequate support to all families in need of children.
Cllr Bramble added: The government must heed this warning.
“We also want to work with the government to develop a cross-cutting strategy for children and young people, clearly outlining the role that all agencies will play in keeping children safe and well. “Only by working together can we effectively protect our most vulnerable young people.”
