Child protection

Protecting Scotland's children and young people is still everyone's job

We can protect children best when everyone works together, talks to each other and knows what kind of issues may cause concern.

This includes relatives, friends, neighbours and communities as well as professionals and others who work (paid or unpaid) with children and young people.

More information about child protection in Scotland can be found on the CELCIS Protecting Children pages.
