Sexual Abuse Towards Children With Disabilities

Children with disabilities face a significantly higher risk of becoming sexually abused, The Sun reports. We discuss the reasons behind this, and look at how reporting mechanisms need to be improved to be inclusive to the needs of these children.

If you would like to reach out to organisations that handle cases of child sexual abuse, you may find out more at Women's Centre For Change or PS The Children.
