Abstract: First paragraph: Neglect remains the most common form of child mistreatment in the UK. It is the most common reason for a child being subject to child protection measures. The majority of professionals surveyed in the online survey said they had come across child neglect in their role. A quarter of the UK adults surveyed have felt very or quite worried about the safety of a child living in their area. Nearly three-quarters of the children and young people had known a child or children who have shown signs of neglect and three in 10 children stated explicitly that they have been worried about whether a child is being looked after properly.
