Dealing with Child Abuse: A Handbook for Child Welfare Workers in Sierra Leone

This manual is intended to provide Child Welfare Workers in Sierra Leone a basis for understanding what is child abuse, recognising symptoms of abuse and knowing where to report abuse. The CRA mandates all Child Welfare Workers to report cases of child abuse to the appropriate authorities to ensure the safety and well being of the child and that the appropriate action is taken.

Child Welfare Workers are a crucial link in strengthening a child protection system at levels of the country. It is the intention that the more Child Welfare Workers are informed about what constitutes abuses, they will be in a better position to protect, prevent and respond if a child is abused.
