NSPCC are carrying out a UK-wide research project, ‘Professionals Breaking the Silence’ with the aim of developing a practical resource which will support professionals working with children to confidently deal with disclosures of abuse and to improve children’s experiences of the disclosure process.
The study will involve hearing directly from individuals about their experiences of dealing with disclosures. To ensure the views of professionals from Scotland are heard, NSPCC Scotland have put together a survey and are looking for the views and opinions of individuals who work both directly and indirectly with children and young people (for example police officers, sports coaches, teachers, school counsellors, school nurses or anyone else who works in a school, youth workers, social workers, GPs, health visitors, foster carers, adoptive parents, or anyone involved with children through the family court system).
The survey closes on Friday 23rd March and will take approximately 10-20 minutes to complete.
