Charity welcomes proposals to ensure the rights of child witnesses are protected-but says even more can be done
Children 1st has welcomed proposals published today by the Scottish Courts and Tribunals Service to ensure child witnesses are treated fairly in the justice system.
Today a group of school children from Glasgow, Clackmannanshire and East Lothian gathered at Children’s 1st’s office in Edinburgh to present films they had made about family rules, discipline and punishment in the home.
Children 1st is delighted to announce that players of People’s Postcode Lottery have awarded it £600,000 for 2016.
Children 1st has thanked players of the People’s Postcode Lottery for enabling it to support children and families across Scotland through difficult times.
Juliette Paton, who has been a volunteer fundraiser with Children 1st for over three decades, has received an MBE for her services to the charity in the New Year’s Honours.
Ex-pat John McGurk is aiming to raise £30,000 for Children 1st by undertaking a 560 mile run between Germany and Glasgow next year – and he’ll do it all in his kilt.
