Leaflet explaining the Child's Plan, part of the Getting it right for every child (GIRFEC) framework.

Executive Summary

The Children and Young People (Scotland) Act 2014 is about improving the wellbeing of children and young people in Scotland. The Act is wide ranging and includes key parts of the Getting it right for every child approach, commonly known as GIRFEC.

The Act ensures a single planning framework – a Child’s Plan – will be available for children who require extra support that is not generally available to address a child or young person’s needs and improve their wellbeing.

This leaflet provides information and key facts about the Child's Plan.
