Safe Families Scotland Launched

eXchangeSafe Families for Children Scotland was launched on the 10th October at the annual eXchange conference hosted in Edinburgh by Bethany Christian Trust.

The eXchange conference helps to bridge the gap between professionals commissioning and delivering services, and the individuals and community groups who are sometimes unaware of the role they can play and the difference they can make. It has a particular emphasis this year upon early intervention, well-being and independence in Scotland’s communities.

The founder of Safe Families for Children presented a special plenary session sharing the history of Safe Families in Chicago, coloured with uplifting stories of families that have been transformed and children who have been diverted from a spending their childhood in the care system.
