There are a number of areas that directly impact children and young people negatively in terms of the wellbeing and safekeeping. These include:
“Family Circumstances” – Children are more at risk if their parents or main carers have either their own health issues (chronic illness and depression) or if these adults have problems with substance abuse or domestic violence – in these cases, there is a risk that the child’s need may not be suitably met. Children that are in care are also at an increased risk level and subsequently more vulnerable, e.g. lack of consistent care, being separated from their immediate family and potentially institutional abuse.
The “Environment” in which children grow up also directly impacts the risks and potentially unsafe practises that some children may be faced with. E.g. High traffic areas (traffic, noise, pollution), violent neighbourhoods, areas were substance abuse is rife).
“Poverty” directly impacts on the health and wellbeing of children for many reasons.
“Cultural Practises” are different around the world and in certain places some practises would be considered a form of exploitation and abuse, frequently depriving children of their childhood and impacting their ability to attend school. Examples here would include child labour, prostitution, drug dealing or arm conflict. Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) and child marriage occur with no consent from the child (i.e. forced) and also considered a form of child abuse.
