BASPCAN - UK-wide increase in number of children
Date:4/15/2012

Researchers at Queen's University Belfast have identified a 60 per cent increase since 2006 in England in the numbers of children being recognised as in need of protection and on the child protection register.

The research team also found that in the same period, Northern Ireland experienced a 46 per cent increase, Wales a 33 per cent increase, and Scotland a 19 per cent increase.

On 31 March 2011, 42,330 children were on the child protection register in England, up from 26,400 in 2006.

The table below reveals the numbers of children on the child protection register at 31 March in 2006 and 2011, in each country.

Child Protection Register Figures

2006 (number of children)
England 26400
Wales 2165
Scotland 2157
Northern Ireland 1639

2011 (number of children)
England 42330
Wales 2880
Scotland 2571
Northern Ireland 2401

The figures have been revealed ahead of a major international child protection conference organised by the British Association for the Study and Prevention of Child Abuse and Neglect (BASPCAN) being held at Queen's between 16 18 April.

The event is providing professionals from across the world with the opportunity to discuss and debate why children become vulnerable, how professionals can respond, and how society can reduce the longer term negative consequences for children of experiencing adversity in childhood. Professor Brigid Daniel, University of Stirling; Dr John Devaney, Queen's University Belfast; District Judge Nicholas Crichton, London and DI John Gedden, Hampshire Police, are just some of the 900 delegates attending who will speak on wide range of developments in the area, including:

  • Hunting and convicting travelling sex offenders
  • Child deaths as a result of abuse and neglect
  • Sexual exploitation of children and young people
  • An initial investigation of the apparent suicide cluster in Bridgend i
