Week against child abuse

During the Week Against Child Abuse in November, Youth Care organizes an annual campaign or other activities to draw attention to the different forms of child abuse.

Unsafe situations for children often arise out of ignorance or powerlessness. Problems at home, for instance, can be so great that a parent is unable to cope with the care. Or adults do not know how to deal with problem situations in a different way. Help is then necessary, because child abuse doesn’t stop by itself.

Therefore, Youth Care calls for contact in case of (signs of) child abuse. Help can be offered through the various aid agencies, but also via the social network or on the victim's own initiative.
