Children 1st

CHILDREN 1ST listens, supports and takes action to secure a brighter future for Scotland's vulnerable children and families.

The charity's work is built on 130 years experience as the RSSPCC (Royal Scottish Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children). By working together with and listening to children, young people, their families and communities, and by influencing public policy and opinion, they help to change the lives of vulnerable children and young people for the better.

The children, young people and families CHILDREN 1ST supports are key partners in all aspects of their work. Their 52 local services and four national services (ParentLine Scotland, Safeguarding in Sport, Scotland's National Kinship Care Service and the National Safeguarders Panel) are all child centred.

The charity is motivated by the desire to make the best possible difference to the lives of Scotland's vulnerable children, young people and their families.
