"Cruelty to children is preventable, but no one organisation can achieve this alone.
"This is why we are working together with others, and are so grateful for the ongoing passion and commitment of our supporters in Scotland, including volunteers, corporate partners and fundraising groups, who help make a real difference to children's lives."
Matt Forde, head of NSPCC services for children and families in Scotland (pictured).
