Most forms of child abuse involve all of the above or some of the above. Rarely is any one form of abuse used against a child. Child abusers come in all shapes and sizes and from a variety of backgrounds. Most abusers are known to their victims and are usually family members. We then have the institutional abusers who hide themselves in the Church, Care Homes, Schools, Scouting organisations and Prisons. There are also the loners that will groom children online to put themselves in the position to abuse the child.
