The Facts

1.

Almost 1 in 5 women will experience sexual assault in their lifetime (British Crime Survey 2009/10)

2.

Rape numbers up 23.7% in London to 3,290 for the 12 months to January 2011 (compared to 2,659 for the same period to Jan 2010) (Metropolitan Police)

3.

5,800 cases of sexual activity with a minor are reported to the police each year

4.

On average, one to two children are killed at the hands of another person every week in England and Wales (NSPCC) (Home Office)

5.

In 2011/12, the police recorded a total of 53,700 sexual offences across England and Wales. The most serious sexual offences of ‘rape’ (16,000 offences) and ‘sexual assault’ (22,100 offences) accounted for 71 per cent of sexual offences recorded by the police.

6.

23% of women and 3% of men experience sexual assault as an adult. 5% of women and 0.4% of men experience rape. (Cross Government Action Plan on Sexual Violence and Abuse) (rapecrisis.org.uk)

7.

Violent crime, comprising assault with or without injury, wounding and robbery, accounted for one-fifth (nearly 2.2 million incidents) of all BCS (British Crime Survey) crime in England and Wales in 2007/08.

8.

A child is assaulted every 20 minutes in the UK.

9.

11.

Almost one in 20 women was stalked last year and one in 5 women will experience stalking in their lifetime (British Crime Survey 2009/10)

12.

In 2010, 28 children under 15 drowned in the UK.

  • Three of these children were under one, 12 were between one and four, four were between five and nine, and nine were between ten and 14.
  • Seven of the under fives drowned in the bath.
  • About 170 children under 15 were taken to hospital after nearly drowning in 2008-09. Near drowning can have long-term consequences such as disability and serious health problems. The longer a child is immersed in water with loss of consciousness and breathing, the more likely that they will suffer these problems.
  • This doesn’t include children who die abroad, in hotel or villa pools. Over the last six years, 30 children under 10 have drowned while on holiday abroad. More than half were under four. In many cases, the toddler wandered away from their parents and fell into an unsupervised pool.

13.

In spite of the fact that drowning is the most likely way a middle or upper income parent could lose a child, most parents (55%) do not worry much, or at all, about their child drowning.

14.

A child submersed in a pool can lose consciousness in as little as two to four minutes.

15.

A child deprived of oxygen will die in as little as four to six minutes.

16.

Children who are resuscitated following prolonged oxygen deprivation may suffer permanent, life-altering brain damage. Devastating near-drowning are almost as common as fatal drownings

17.

A child can drown in as little as 3 to 4 cm of water.

18.

Most drowning events are totally silent.

19.

Boys are three to four times more likely to drown than girls. Boys are generally more adventurous and engage in risky behaviour more frequently.

20.

60% of all drownings occur in children aged between 1 and 4.

21.

Almost all parents say that they actively supervise their children while swimming, but 94% admit to engaging in distracting activities such as snoozing, reading and using the phone whilst supervising.

22.

Rapid initiation of CPR and first aid is critical to survival. A rescued but unconscious child who is not breathing is in just as much danger as if he or she were still in the pool.

23.

Over 6,000 women and men in the UK have reported being the victim of a drug rape attack since 1997.

24.

In 2003, more than 1,000 women and men (13% of the victims were men) in Britain reported being raped while drugged.

25.

One in four women who drink claim to have had their drink spiked at least once.

26.

In 2013, 500 reported domestic violence cases, more than 8 out of 10 clients were women

27.

In the last quarter of 2012 there were 3,300 reported domestic violence cases, an 11 per cent increase compared with the same period the previous year

28.

16 per cent of people seeking advice about domestic abuse cases sought advice about domestic violence involving children.

29.

In 2012 around 1.2 million women suffered domestic abuse, over 400,000 women were sexually assaulted, 70,000 women were raped and thousands more were stalked. These crimes are often hidden away behind closed doors, with the victim suffering in silence.

30.

Fewer than 1 in 4 people who suffer abuse at the hands of their partner - and only around 1 in 10 women who experience serious sexual assault - report it to the police.
