Police Scotland has thrown its support behind a child protection initiative which urges everyone in Scotland to keep their ‘Eyes Open’ for children at risk during the school holidays.
That’s the message from Child Protection Committees (CPCScotland) across the country as term time ends and children and young people spend more time unsupervised during the summer months.
“For most children the summer holidays are a time for fun and a hard-earned break from school, but for some this period can bring an increased risk of harm, neglect, and disruption," commented Maree Todd, Minister for Childcare and Early Years. “We all have a part to play in protecting children and keeping them safe from harm. I urge everyone to take an Eyes Open approach this summer and report anything you feel may put a child at risk."
