Jornada sobre maltrato infantil y discapacidad

Conference on child abuse and disability


“Children with disabilities suffer higher rates of abuse (23, 08%) compared to children without (3, 87%). This is reflected in the report “Maltrato Infantil en la familia en España” (Child Abuse in the Family in Spain), prepared by the Reina Sofía Centre for the Study of Violence in collaboration with the Ministry of Health, Social Policy and Equality and published in 2011 by the aforementioned Ministry. In order to face this reality, a conference on child abuse and disability will be held on the 19th of November.

The Federation of Associations for the Prevention of Child Abuse (FAPMI-ECPAT Spain) together with the Castilian-Leonese Association for the Defence of Children and Youth (REA), with the support and funding of the Ministry of Health, Consumption and Social Welfare and the collaboration of the Hospital Sisters of Valladolid, organized the “Day “Violence (in)visible.
