Fighting for childhood in Scotland How we're standing up for children

We’re building a better future for Scotland's children through working with local services and communities and influencing national policy developments and political processes.

We use the information and learning gathered through our direct services with children and families to inform decision-making and encourage wider change to protect Scotland's children from abuse and neglect.

We want to move child welfare up the policy agenda and place it at the heart of building a better future for Scotland.
