The reports were received from July 1 last year to July 1 this year.

According to the service, the first threat level was attributed to 12,200 cases, and there were 1,800 cases of the highest threat level. The first threat level means that a child's rights are violated but there's no threat to the child's health, safety or life, and the highest – second – level means a child's health, safety or life is in danger.

The majority of cases involved possible non-violent violations of children's rights, with the police being the main source of information.

Also over the past year, psychologists, social workers and addictions specialists from mobile teams provided assistance to 891 families.

Specialists from the service visited families almost 3,200 times, produced almost 800 recommendations to case managers on further work with families and attended over 650 management sittings.
