A study of confirmed cases of child sexual abuse showed that only 56% of children received an appointment at a counselling agency in spite of explicit policy guidelines that children have an opportunity for counselling in the aftermath of the abuse. The study revealed that problems created at all levels within the interagency environment led to children becoming ''lost'' in the system and not receiving the services from which they could have benefited. Particular attention is given to changes in the broader policy and resource context which have ramifications at the local interagency level and in the services provided for sexually abused children.
