With the closure of schools and nurseries during the Covid-19 crisis, Child Protection Scotland is urging everyone to keep their eyes and ears open for children who may be at risk during this time.
Child Protection Committees Scotland (CPCScotland) is a national grouping of professionals who work together to improve the protection of children in Scotland.
Every child in Scotland has the right to be kept safe from abuse, neglect, exploitation and any other kind of harm that puts them at risk.
The Child Protection Scotland website explains different kinds of child abuse, and what to do if you’re worried about a child or children.
If you’re concerned about a child, it’s better to say something than do nothing – it’s everyone’s responsibility to protect children from harm.
Individuals and local communities can play huge part in protecting children, by supporting the great work already being done by professionals, official organisations, the police and the law.
