A National Strategy for Survivors of Childhood Abuse
In 2005, the Scottish Government launched the National Strategy for Survivors of Childhood Abuse. The work of the Scottish Parliament's Cross Party Group for Survivors of Childhood Abuse and many other individuals and organisations were instrumental in developing the strategy.
The strategy's aims, among many, are to:
- Raise and improve knowledge and awareness of childhood abuse
- Ensure joined-up working in mainstream services
- Improve the lives of survivors
- Develop training and skills for frontline workers
SurvivorScotland is tasked with achieving these aims
This section details our work to date, current projects and future plans as well as the background to creating the National Strategy and what has been achieved so far.
