Glasgow Child Abuse Trial Verdict
Commenting on the verdict in the Glasgow child abuse trial today Mary Glasgow, Chief Executive, Children 1st, Scotland’s national children’s charity said:
“There are no words to adequately convey the shock, horror and distress that children have experienced such extreme and cruel abuse over such a long period. The depth of trauma that the children, in this case, have suffered will be unimaginable to most of us. It is imperative that they now get the intensive support they need to recover from the terrible experiences that led to this trial.
“Whilst this case was extreme and unusual, we know that far too many children suffer abuse and harm in Scotland. Child protection is skilled, difficult and complex work. We need to re-focus our priorities as a society and urgently invest in effective support to prevent harm and act fast to protect children where harm has taken place.”
