NSPCC Scotland (Aberdeen Services)

At NSPCC Scotland we believe that every childhood is worth fighting for. We work to make child abuse and neglect a thing of the past.

We run Childline, the free and confidential counselling service for children and young people which is accessible every day, all year, 24 hours a day. Our Childline bases in Aberdeen and Glasgow.

We also aim to go into every primary school in Scotland to deliver our Speak Out, Stay Safe programme, talking to children about how to stay safe and speak out if they have any worries or concerns.
