RoSPA in Scotland
The RoSPA Scotland office is based in Edinburgh, but we cover the length and breadth of Scotland. The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents was established almost 100 years ago, beginning life as the London Safety First Council. RoSPA spread to Scotland with the formation of the Scottish "Safety First" Council and an office opened in Glasgow in 1930. Now in Edinburgh, our community safety department deals with all home safety enquiries - and there are also specialists in road safety and workplace safety.
