SurvivorScotland oversees the National Strategy for survivors of childhood abuse. Childhood abuse happens to women and men from all backgrounds and walks of life. Most of us know someone who has been abused whether we realise it or not.
SurvivorScotland, developed by the Scottish Government, aims to raise awareness of childhood abuse and its long-term consequences, improve services and enhance the health and wellbeing of survivors. To do this we work in a variety of ways, including funding of support organisations, a national training programme for front line workers, data collection projects and sharing of best practice.
We hope that this site will provide helpful information if you have been affected by child abuse in any way.
