Children 1st

Children 1st is Scotland’s national children’s charity. 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. Children 1st builds the aspirations, self-confidence and resilience of children and their families.

A gift to Children 1st is more than a donation to a helpline, a crisis grant or a foodbank. It can offer vital support at a family's crisis point; help families learn to manage money long-term; provide the opportunity to come together and learn to cook healthy, balanced meals and build your community.
