Edinburgh Child Protection

Edinburgh Child Protection Committee and NSPCC Scotland are working together to design a city wide campaign on neglect.  As part of this we are keen to develop a better understanding of what parents in Edinburgh understand by the term neglect, what they would do if they suspected a child was being neglected and where families access support with parenting.  We have created a short survey to do this, which should take between five and ten minutes to complete.  By completing this survey, you are helping us ensure that the final campaign will be relevant to all families and contribute towards keeping all children in the city safe.   Closing date for responses is 18 March.
