The national charity for child protection works in England, Wales, Northern Ireland, Scotland and the Channel Islands. The charity, founded in 136 years ago, seeks to protect children from all forms of violence and exploitation, offers support and care, encourages children to reach their potential and challenges inequalities.

It’s outrageous that adults are protected from assault by the law, yet children — who are, by definition, the smallest, the most defenceless and the most vulnerable people in society — do not enjoy the same basic protections.
