This report describes a nine- to ten-year follow-up study of pre-school children placed on child protection registers, the great majority of whom had been physically harmed. The aims of the study were to discover: the longer-term consequences of physical ill treatment; whether the circumstances of the original abuse had any predictive power in relation to children's safety in the longer term; the extent of the life changes during the follow-up period; the present family arrangements of the children; whether the supportive services provided by the key agency influenced outcomes; and the consequences of placement in substitute families.
