Children on "edge of care", and the role of social workers associated with them. “The true measure of a nation’s standing is how well it attends to its children- their health and safety, their material security, their education and socialisation, and their sense of being loved, valued, and included in the families and societies into which they are born.”(UNICEF, 2007, 1) The topic of child abuse and the subsequent need for their protection has always been an acknowledged social problem, though legislations in this regards are a relatively new subject.
