The National Network to End Child Abuse was formed in 2012 and for four years we laid the groundwork for what our charity is today. We listened to child protection organisations, experts and victims throughout the world.
We learnt everything we could about how organisations were fighting abuse, what research has been done into why abuse happens, and we spoke to victims and family members, friends and community members.
We wanted to fully understand what was already happening, so that we could add to and further the work being done. Abuse is prevalent; we were determined to find a way to make our work impactful, sustainable and scalable.
In 2016, we launched the NNECA programme, focusing on prevention. Today we are determined to take our mission for improved education and awareness as far and wide as possible to empower and protect our children.
