Where is the Child Abuse Data? Sharon Shoesmith in 2015 on the paucity of data even for familial child homicide
How can anyone learn?
There is an absence of child abuse data in this country i.e. age, sex, location, abuse type (sexual, physical, neglect, emotional, adult on child, child on child, CSE, CSA, trafficked) Setting : familial, regulated activity - by type, opportunistic, other + outcomes for each.
Where is the data? You will see that not even the MR consultation provides it. The data does not to exist. Without it improvements to child protection will be glacial, just as it has been for Regulated Activities during the last 60 years..
