Report that sheds light on children with disabilities who are suffering from sexual violence - abuse that goes unacknowledged, both by communities and by the state; is shrouded in taboos; and is rarely discussed or investigated. The report seeks to address this and make the issue more visible, as well as challenge governments and communities, including the international community, to tackle it head on.

Report that seeks to address concerns that were initially raised by NSPCC supporters who were concerned that offenders may be receiving inappropriately short sentences for offences against children.
