Who is this for?
For people who have experienced abuse or neglect when they were under the age of 18, in Scotland, within a care setting. This includes:
- living in residential or foster care
- boarding school (either state, private or independent)
- having a long term stay in hospital
- spending time in a Young Offenders’ Institution
As long as you are over 18 now, and the abuse or neglect took place before you were 18, you can register.
It doesn’t matter if:
- the abuse or neglect has been reported to the authorities (such as the police)
- there are current or past criminal or civil proceedings taking place
- you have previously accessed other services
- you are currently receiving benefits
- if you don’t live in Scotland.
