Prevention of Cruelty to Children

Prevention of Cruelty to Children.

The Institution in connection with the Reformatory and Refuge Union hitherto known as the Stock bridge Nursery and Infant Home, Edinburgh, will in future be known as the "Edinburgh and Leith Children's Aid and Refuge for the Protection of Children."

The Directors having had their attention called to the fact, that it is desirable to have a shelter provided in the centre of the city for the reception of cases of cruelty to children which from time to time come under the cognisance of the police, have secured central and commodious premises, at 150, High Street, for this purpose.

The following Branches of the work will still be continued:—
1.The Day Nursery, 10, Mackenzie Place.
2.The Infant Home, 11, Mackenzie Place.
3.The Home for Boys, 4, Bayton Terrace, Granton Road.
4.The Home for Boys, 1, Craigholm, Burntisland.
5.The Home for Girls, 2, Craigholm, Burntisland.
6.The Home for Girls, 16, Craigholm, Burntisland.

All these Homes have been provided for the class of children who may be for a time inmates of the shelter. At the present time, the Directors have upwards of 150 children under their care.
