2.2 Historical/Non-recent Abuse (Delayed Reporting)
This can be either:
- someone who is an adult (18 years or over) and the allegation relates to an incident that took place when the alleged victim was under 18 years old, or
- someone who is still a child (under 18 years) and the allegation relates to an incident that took place when the alleged victim was a younger child.
Organisational responses must be of as high a standard as a response to current abuse.
For more information on responding to children disclosing abuse, see the NSPCC resources.
