Protecting Children from abuse

Today the government announced tough new measures to crack down on child sexual abuse, better protecting children from vile sexual predators. 

  • Too many children who have been victims of sexual abuse have been failed in the past, but the Conservative government is determined to crack down on this.
  • So the government is introducing tough new measures requiring those in positions of responsibility to report allegations of child sexual abuse by law and powers to block registered sex offenders from changing their name. 
  • These measures, recommended by the Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse, are backed by robust criminal penalties, protecting children from sexual abuse in the future.
  • These reforms will send a clear message that children will never be let down, whether in schools, sports settings, or any supervised environment, delivering on our plan to secure a brighter future for children across the country.
