Children 1st works to keep children safe, loved and well and together with their families.
Children 1st is Scotland’s National Children’s Charity. Since 1884 children have been at the heart of everything we do.
We exist to prevent abuse and neglect, to protect children and keep them safe from harm. Together we help children in Scotland live in safe, loving families and build strong communities. We help survivors of abuse, trauma and other adversity to recover and we work tirelessly to protect the rights of children in Scotland.
Children do well when their families do well, so we work with children and families in their homes, local communities and across Scotland. We offer practical, emotional and financial support to prevent and protect children and their families from harm and to support them to recover from trauma and abuse.
We also work alongside children, young people and their families to uphold and progress their rights and to strengthen and improve the systems that are there to support them.
If your family are feeling stressed or anxious Children 1st Parentline can help.
