Safe Families for Children Scotland empowers local churches to care for some of the most vulnerable members of our society – children whose families are going through a hard time. The church is already a natural place of support, encouragement and care and has the desire to reach out to its community. However, as our communities become increasingly disjointed, the people whom the church most wants to help are often isolated and hard to find. Safe Families for Children is the bridge – connecting local churches in Scotland with families who need help to get back on their feet.
Scripture Union Scotland is part of the worldwide family of Scripture Union movements that began in the nineteenth century and now operate in over 130 countries.
