Aberlour has been built upon a foundation of values that spans our history. Those values are rooted in social justice, equality and a fundamental belief in the resilience and potential of children.

From this value base, we are dedicated to influencing the development of local and national policy for the benefit of the children, young people and families that we work to support. Aberlour is the largest children’s charity working solely in Scotland and we have a wealth of knowledge and experience in many areas including parental substance use, residential child care, parenting, youth work, inclusion in education and disability. This expertise is used to inform key national debates and to assist decision makers in the development of legislation.

By leading specific campaigns or working in partnership with other organisations and networks, we seek to give a voice to some of the most vulnerable children and young people in our society and are committed to working with all tiers of government to help make Scotland the ‘best place in the world to grow up.’
