Children’s Commissioner Anne Longfield said:
“Children that have experienced trauma will often have physical and emotional scars that remain with them for life, so it is vital that children who are abused get the support they need to help them to recover. Our own report on abuse in families, published late last year recommended that children receive a holistic package of support, tailored to their needs, including therapeutic help from the moment it is known that they have been abused.
“NSPCC’s important report confirms that support for children who have been abused is seriously lacking and that much greater help is needed.”
