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 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.

Presentation ceremonies for the internationally recognised RoSPA Awards will once again be held in London, co-located with the Safety and Health Expo 2016, as well as in Birmingham and Glasgow.
Action on Accidents
RoSPA and the Royal College of Emergency Medicine (RCEM) are calling for a £2million-per-year nationwide programme in Scotland that would relieve some of the huge pressure on Scottish A&E departments by preventing accidental injuries to under-5s.
