Upstream online resource

Upstream – Protecting The Next Child

The Upstream Project was set up to help adults and communities in Scotland prevent child sexual abuse. We believe that preventing child sexual abuse is all our responsibility and this depends on changing the thinking and behaviour of adults.

It aims to be the one-stop resource for anyone who wants to know more about the prevention of child sexual abuse and how they can contribute and help.

The Upstream web resource was launched in December 2019 by Maree Todd, MSP, Minister for Children & Young People.
