Short, medium and long term impacts of child sexual abuse

Short, medium and long term impacts of child sexual abuse

The impacts of child sexual abuse are huge and cannot be ignored. Yesterday and today the IICSA has been considering the impact on victims and survivors, their families and society as a whole. As part of research in this area, consideration has been made of the cost of abuse to the UK, as calculated by the NSPCC, at £3.2 billion per annum. The first day of the seminar however was not just focused on the financial impact but the much wider impacts of abuse.

Some of the topics discussed yesterday included mental health, processes connected with disclosure, support services in the NHS and voluntary sectors, the impact on families as well as the abused. There are due to be two further seminars today to explore these topics further.

Next week we will produce a series of blogs which focus on the topics highlighted in the seminars.
