Acknowledgment letter

We are writing to confirm Action for Children’s participation in Redress Scotland.

Action for Children’s support for children began in 1869, when Reverend Dr Thomas Bowman Stephenson took action to help children living on the streets and we opened our first service in Scotland in 1955.  

Whilst we have always striven to provide care and support of a high quality for children and young people that places children at the centre of what we do, we acknowledge and deeply apologise for the harm caused in our care settings to victims of historic abuse and recognise the damaging impact that child abuse has on victims.

Our absolute priority is to keep children and young people safe, and we have robust safeguarding policies and procedures in place to ensure the lessons of the past have been learnt.

Deanna Neilson

Director of Safeguarding
