The First Minister will also highlight this worrying trend in a speech this week. A number of potential reasons have been highlighted for this significant drop.
The North Wales Safeguarding Board are asking everyone within the region to look out for one another in order to help those who may be at risk of abuse and neglect. This is a message which applies at all times, but now more than ever, people at all ages need protection
