The North Ayrshire Child Protection Committee is made up of representatives from across the main statutory and voluntary organisations in your area.

The purpose of the Child Protection Committee is to ensure that local agencies work together to protect children. Working together with the community we can be assured that all children in our area are protected from harm and given the best possible chance in life.

The Child Protection Committee has a number of sub-groups which take work forward on behalf of the Committee.
