All the evidence about disabled children’s experiences suggests that they are more vulnerable to abuse than non-disabled children. For the last twenty years or so, a number of individuals and organisations have struggled to bring this to the attention of government, local authorities and the major children’s organisations. The National Working Group on Child Protection and Disability believes that comprehensive action is required in order to protect disabled children from abuse. The first two recommendations reflect this, calling as they do for a review of the current child protection system and the development of a national strategy for the safeguarding of disabled children. However, within these two main recommendations, smaller steps are identified that would help promote the safeguarding of disabled children even if they were implemented without a major review or national strategy.
