Thank you for your Trauma Teddies

We have been truly overwhelmed by your response to our Trauma Teddy appeal. 

Thanks to your generosity we have now been able to supply all the participating police stations. This means we don’t currently require any more teddies, so please put down your needles for a well-deserved break!

Thank you to all the people who have supported the project so far. Your teddies are being be used to provide comfort and help to Scotland’s children and families, and they let parents know that Parentline, our national family support service is here for them, for any issue, big or small.

If you are in the middle of making a teddy, please do finish it and send it to us at:

Children 1st
83 Whitehouse Loan
Edinburgh
EH9 1AT

We will make another appeal for teddies in the future when more are needed.

Linda Jardine, our Director of Children and Family Services, has a message of thanks for all the amazing knitters:
