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.

Our policy team in Scotland respond to government consultations and write briefings to influence the development of policies and laws that affect children and young people. Below are the most recent government consultations we've responded to.
