Review of Child Neglect in Scotland
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.
