The specialist RSPCC Overnewton Centre was established at a time when treatment of families where non-accidental injury of children had occurred was starting to have impetus. It offered an education or re-education into family living in a mixed discipline group. Planning for the unit began in 1974. It was based in a former primary school at Yorkhill, Glasgow, and offered intensive case work service to up to 25 families where abuse of children was suspected. Vera Hiddleston was chair of the Management Committee of the centre. The Centre received substantial funding from the Scottish Office. It closed in 1993.
