We exist to prevent abuse and neglect, to protect children and keep them safe from harm.

Together we can 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.

Our work supporting children and families

Children 1st is Scotland’s National Children’s Charity. Some children have little to smile about. We’re determined to give them reasons to.

We help Scotland’s families to put children first, with practical advice and with support in difficult times. And when the worst happens, we support survivors of abuse, neglect, and other traumatic events in childhood, to recover.

We help Scotland’s communities to play their part in looking-out for and protecting children.

We listen to Scotland’s children and families. And when government or society fails to hear them or respect their rights, we speak out.
