Resources for children of abuse, and caregivers

Margaret Tuite EU Commission co-ordinator for the Rights of the Child

They're pinwheels that have been planted in the ground in support of National Child Abuse Prevention Month, which runs through April.

Harvey said the goal of "Tie One to End Child Abuse Day" is to raise awareness about child abuse and the means through which it can be prevented, including community dialogue, educational resources and support for families. The program is hosted by Eyewitness News Anchor Diana Williams and addresses child sexual abuse and alarming statistics that reveal the fact that in this country, one in four girls and one in six boys are sexually abused before the age of eighteen.

"I have a personal story that is much like the children that walk through these doors", Denise Roberts, Executive Director of Patsy's House, said. These include the creation of a Victims' Ombudsman, and guidelines for intermediaries, specially trained experts who can explain questions asked by barristers and help clarify answers from vulnerable victims, such as young child sex abuse victims.

It's estimated that 40 million children are subjected to abuse each year across the globe.

There is great need for more foster care families in Bell County and opportunities to volunteer to provide Christmas gifts and other needed supplies for children, Woodberry said. The flag is also a reminder that one person - even just one - can make a difference in the course of a child's life, Harvey said. See rules missing? Suggest them.

A World Health Organisation report in 2013 estimated 90 per cent of abuse against children goes undetected.

As you read this, please do not forget to think about how you can make a true difference in the life of a child with your time, your talents and your treasure.

"As with all victims, support has been offered throughout the case and this will continue with the help of other agencies and charities".

The Bill also ensures that survivors are treated fairly by introducing a cap on the legal fees that may be charged to a plaintiff in child sexual abuse cases.

The Southeast Alabama Child Advocacy Center kicked off its Blue Ribbon Campaign Friday. This approach is built on a framework of collaboration between and among community groups, state and local organizations and local teams.
