The Children at Risk in Ireland group believes it is time to broaden the narrow focus on clerical abuse.

It says over 80% of abused children are hurt by family members or other trusted adults.

The group's National Clinical Director, Dr Niall Muldoon, says it is vital that the needs of all victims are urgently addressed.

CARI published its annual report today.
