What is neglect?

You could be suffering from neglect if:

  • You don’t have enough warm clothes or shoes
  • You don’t have enough to eat and drink
  • You are left alone for a long time, or left in charge of family without adult help
  • You are forced to sleep somewhere cold or uncomfortable
  • No-one helps you when you are ill or you have been hurt 
If any of these things are happening to you, you might think it is your fault. It isn’t. No-one has the right to abuse you. There are people who care and can help. Speak to a teacher, trusted family member or friend.
