Children 1st is Scotland’s National Children’s Charity. Some children have little to smile about. We’re determined to give them reasons to. We help Scotland’s families to put children first; with practical advice and with support in difficult times. And when the worst happens; we support survivors of abuse; neglect; and other traumatic events in childhood; to recover. We help Scotland’s communities to play their part in looking-out for and protecting children. We listen to Scotland’s children and families. And when government or society fails to hear them or respect their rights; we speak out.
Parentline can offer advice and support to families worried about how to cope with a long period together in a small space; how to keep their children busy; facing financial uncertainties or uncertain about how to balance work and childcare. As well as providing one to one family support through webchat; email; or by phone on 08000 28 22 33; Children 1st’s Parentline service has started providing specific tips and advice for all families on its webpages: children1st.org.uk/parentline
