CHILDREN 1st is one of Scotland’s leading children’s charities. Every year in Scotland, CHILDREN 1st supports thousands of children and their families to overcome issues such as abuse, neglect, poverty, parental drug and alcohol problems, isolation, family breakdown and chaotic homelives. For over 129 years we have been working to give every child in Scotland a happy, healthy, safe and secure childhood.
Most children grow up in happy, loving homes. But sadly for some this is not the case. Every year thousands of children and families seek our support. Some of the children we work with have suffered physical, sexual or emotional abuse. Others are struggling to cope with poverty, parental substance misuse, bullying, family breakdown and chaotic home lives. We operate 52 local as well as 4 national services focusing on giving vulnerable children happier childhoods and brighter futures. Our work helps children thrive.
