Child Protection

We are all responsible for keeping children safe from harm, whether it be at home, at school or in the community. Child protection is not only the responsibility of social work services but is the responsibility of families, the community, education and health.
Child Protection Services are there to prevent harm to children, through neglect or abuse. If you have concerns over the wellbeing of a child, contact your local social work office, the Police or the Reporter to the Children's Panel.

The Glasgow Child Protection Committee 
The Glasgow Child Protection Committee is made up of representatives from across the main statutory and voluntary organisations in Glasgow. The purpose of the Child Protection Committee is to ensure local agencies work together to protect children.
