The official website of the book "Hidden in Front of Us"



Welcome to the Hidden in Front of Us website. This amazing book was launched on the 24th of August 2010 at Parliament by Tony Ryall, Minister of Health.

Twenty four adult survivors of child abuse share their experiences of being children who desperately needed an adult to stand up for them. They also share their ideas about what could have been done to help. Their words and stories provide an insight into what each of us can do when we have a concern about a child.

This book may be the most important you’ll ever read because it may help you save a child’s life, or at the very least preserve the wealth of potential that is lost every time a child is harmed.
