Child abuse victims face further trauma as adults, Crime Survey finds

Release Date: 27 Sep 2017

Findings from the Crime Survey of England and Wales reveal that more than half of adults who were abused as children go on to experience domestic abuse later in life.

In response, Barnardo’s Chief Executive Javed Khan said:

The Crime Survey shows much more needs to be done to help victims of child abuse rebuild their lives to prevent them being abused as an adult.

Barnardo's specialist services work to tackle the devastating impact domestic violence and sexual abuse has on vulnerable children.

The earlier these children get the help they so desperately need the better chance they have of transforming their lives so they can lead positive futures.
