In this edition you can read about our first ever digital campaign, Create a Smile, which launched in September with the aim of highlighting the unacceptable levels of child abuse in Scotland.

Child poverty has become a growing concern for Children 1st service teams with one in five children in Scotland currently experiencing poverty. For the children we support, growing up in poverty means feeling cold, going hungry and being unable to fully join in with activities. Child poverty not only blights childhoods, it is likely to result in poorer financial prospects, health and wellbeing throughout the course of a person’s lifetime.

The feature on page 5 of Supporters News explains more about how we are influencing Government policy to reduce the impact of child poverty in the future.
