For over 125 years CHILDREN 1ST has been working to build a brighter future for Scotland's vulnerable children and families.

At CHILDREN 1ST we listen, we support and we take action by delivering services in homes and communities across Scotland. We work to safeguard children and young people, to support them within their families and to help them to recover from abuse, neglect and violence. We speak out for children's rights and we campaign to change attitudes. CHILDREN 1ST provides local services across Scotland as well as national services. ParentLine Scotland (08000 28 22 33), is the national telephone helpline for parents, carers or any adult concerned about a child.
