Review of Child Neglect in Scotland

Year: 2013
Topic: Neglect
Author: Brigid Daniel, Cheryl Burgess, Jane Scott

This Scottish review builds on the first review in a series of UK wide reviews of child neglect undertaken by Action for Children in partnership with the University of Stirling and addresses three questions:

  • How many children are currently experiencing neglect in Scotland?
  • How good are we at recognising children who are at risk of, or are experiencing neglect?
  • How well are we helping children at risk of, or currently experiencing neglect?

The project was funded by the Scottish Government and undertaken in partnership with Action for Children.
