Creating Safety: Child protection guidelines for Scotland’s arts, screen and creative industries, produced by Children in Scotland in collaboration with Creative Scotland, provides guidance on child protection and safeguarding for individuals and organisations involved in delivering artistic, cultural and creative projects for or with children and young people in Scotland.

The aim of the guidance is to create the safest possible environment for children and young people, where they can feel safe and comfortable, are treated equitably and with respect, and where they are given freedom to have fun and develop their independence and creativity.
