Children 1st is a membership organisation as stipulated in our Royal Charter. Our members play an important part in the structure of the organisation as, through their voting rights at the AGM, they can influence the charity’s governance and direction.

By becoming a member, you could make a vital contribution to the important work of Children 1st supporting vulnerable children, young people and families in Scotland.


Members receive an invitation to the Children 1st Annual General Meeting, our bi-annual newsletter, regular e-news updates on what is happening within the organisation and invitations to local service open days.

It is free to become a member, and there is no fixed term of the membership – you can join for as long or as short as you like.
