Child Protection

All children and young people in Fife have a right to be cared for and protected. We all have a part to play to ensure that you are safe and your needs are met. Here in Fife, we believe that “child protection is everyone’s job and everyone’s responsibility”.

The Fife Child Protection web pages offer more detail on child safety issues.

Getting it Right for Every Child

‘The Executive’s vision for Scotland’s children is a Scotland in which every child matters, where every child regardless of his or her family background, has the best possible start in life. Every adult in Scotland has a role in ensuring all our children live safely and can reach their full potential. Parents, whether living with the child or not, have the most important role to play and other family members will contribute greatly to a child’s wellbeing.’
