Aberdeen City Child Protection Committee is a partnership with representatives from social work, police, health, education, children’s hearing, housing and the third sector.  The Child Protection Committee works together to maintain and improve arrangements for child protection across the city.

The Operational Sub Committee has a Child Protection Programme which aims to make sure that every child or young person in Aberdeen is safe and protected from harm including:

  • Being physically, sexually or emotionally harmed, or put at risk of harm, abuse or exploitation;
  • Having their basic needs neglected or being cared for in ways that are not appropriate to their age and stage of development;
  • Being denied the sustained support and care necessary for them to thrive and develop normally;
  • Being denied access to appropriate medical care and treatment; and
  • Being exposed to demands and expectations which are inappropriate to their age and stage of development;
