Information and support
Safer Shetland works closely with many organisations locally and nationally to ensure our service is the best it can be and to help make the islands a safe place to live. If you are looking for support or want to help protect a child or adult our library of documents is a valuable resource, and will help you understand who to contact and what to expect. You will find information about child protection, adult protection, domestic abuse, and how to seek help and support in Shetland.
It’s everyone’s job to keep children and adults in Shetland safe – but it’s not always easy. Safer Shetland has lots of resources and online courses to help you recognise the signs of harm, know when to act, and know how to disclose concerns. Procedures and guidance alone can’t protect children and adults, but together a vigilant public and skilled and confident workforce can.
