Coronavirus: social isolation and the risk of child abuse

By June 29, 2020National News

NSPCC Learning has published a briefing looking at social isolation and the risk of child abuse during and after the coronavirus pandemic.

Key findings from a review of research evidence and data collected by the NSPCC helpline and Childline include: that coronavirus has increased stressors on caregivers; conditions caused by the coronavirus pandemic have heightened the vulnerability of children and young people to certain types of abuse, for example online abuse, abuse within the home, criminal exploitation and child sexual exploitation; and the ‘normal’ safeguards to protect children and young people have been reduced during the pandemic.
