Fewer children are dying as a result of homicide, assault or suicide today, but disturbing levels of child abuse remain according to a new report from the NSPCC.

The children’s charity, which runs local services to support vulnerable children and their families in Northamptonshire, is calling for a new approach to child protection aimed at stopping child abuse and maltreatment before it starts.

According to How Safe are our Children, for every child in the UK subject to a protection plan or on child protection registers another eight have suffered maltreatment.
