Child Protection

My research and writing on child protection featured here:

CP before age 5: My research that shows one in 5 children were referred to children’s services and 1 in 19 investigated in England before their fifth birthday in 2014-15. In Western Australia 13% of all children born in 1990 and 1991 were reported before reaching the age of eighteen and a disturbing increase in reports of Aboriginals and Torres Strait Islanders in recent cohorts with an estimate that almost half of Aboriginals born in 2004 had been reported before their fifth birthday
