That the Parliament acknowledges with deep appreciation the remarkable efforts undertaken by the locally-based charity, Safe Strong and Free, in its dedicated pursuit of safeguarding the Highland's youngest citizens through its innovative Primary Abuse Prevention Programme; notes that the charity, through its commitment to reducing the vulnerability of young children to abuse and assault, has demonstrated a profound understanding of the crucial role that early education and awareness play in creating a secure and nurturing environment for local children; recognises and commends the charity's holistic approach, which not only imparts crucial safety education to children but also actively involves families in reinforcing the safety messages that are conveyed; acknowledges the charity's alignment with the Curriculum for Excellence outcomes, ensuring that children receive essential abuse prevention education during their pre-school and primary school years, and encourages further support of Safe Strong and Free to ensure that the charity can continue to provide such a vital service to children and families in the Highlands.
