GIRFEC

GIRFEC information for parents

The Scottish Government is rolling out the Getting it Right for Every Child (GIRFEC) aspects of the Children and Young People (Scotland) Act 2014. What does this mean for families?

The Act aims to improve the wellbeing of children and young people in Scotland. It is wide ranging and includes key elements of the GIRFEC approach such as the Child’s Plan and the Named Person.

If you are looking for key facts about the Named Person, the Scottish Government has provided answers to many of the frequently-asked questions about the scheme on this page.

NPFS has worked with Scottish Government on all aspects of the Act and we look forward to more of Scotland’s children and young people benefiting from the national roll out of Getting It Right For Every Child.
