Children 1st

Putting children first across Scotland

Children 1st works to keep children safe, loved and well and together with their families.

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.
