Child Abuse In Australia – Donate to create safer communities

Child abuse and neglect happens for a range of reasons, and across all demographics. All members of the community can play a role in helping keep children safe. The below statistics provide a picture of child abuse in Australia. It is important to note that due to the nature of child abuse, there can be variations in the reported cases and actual cases of abuse.

  • Approximately 1 in 7 boys and 1 in 3 girls will experience some form of sexual abuse.[1]
  • Around 80% of boys and 90% of girls are sexually abused by someone they know.[2]
  • 1 in 3 Australians would not believe children if they disclosed they were being abused.[3]

Approximately 30 to 60% of childhood sexual abuse is committed by other children and young people.[3]
