At CHILDREN 1ST, our vision is a happy, healthy, safe and secure childhood for every child and young person in Scotland. We have 125 years experience of working with children and families, previously as the Royal Scottish Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Children (RSSPCC). Today, we support families under stress, protect children from harm and neglect, help them to recover from abuse and promote children's rights and interests. ‘Members of the public have an important and undeniable part to play in protecting children. They should feel confident in referring any concerns about child abuse and neglect that they may have. But in order to do this they need clear information on how to access information about how to access services and what they and the child and family can expect to happen.
