THE CHILD Care Board has received 780 reports of alleged child abuse and neglect that impacted the lives of 1 087 children between April 1, 2012, and March 31, 2013.
Of these reports, 327 were cases of neglect that impacted 548 children.
But these figures, said Minister of Social Care, Constituency Empowerment and Community Development Steve Blackett, were just the tip of the iceberg.
Blackett made this point as he delivered the feature address during the launch of the Break The Silence – End Child Abuse Campaign, at the Lloyd Erskine Sandiford Centre yesterday.
