    Rise in recorded child cruelty and neglect offences

    Written by on November 27, 2019

    Recorded child cruelty and neglect offences rose by more than a quarter last year.

    Analysis of police data by NSPCC Scotland found there were 818 offences recorded in total.

    Those included extreme cases where parents deliberately assaulted or abandoned their children.

    Matt Forde, national head of service for NSPCC Scotland, said: “Greater public awareness and improvements in police recording could be factors in this increase, but deeper societal issues such as increasing pressure on parents and a lack of investment in early intervention and support services, are leaving more children vulnerable and exposed to pain and suffering.

    “Whatever the reasons for the rise, cruelty to children is never ok and it is vital that they always have a place they can go to seek help and support, day and night. Childline never stops and never sleeps, but for this to continue we need the public’s support and to back our ‘Light for Every Childhood’ Appeal.”
