Getting it right for every child (GIRFEC) Policy Statement - Easy Read

This policy statement provides an overview of the policy and legislative context for GIRFEC. The document gives an outline of the core components of the policy, including refreshed values and principles, and ambitions for how we can do more in practice.


Reaching our goals

GIRFEC considers and addresses inequalities.

We know that every child or young person has different circumstances. We need to tackle the many inequalities they may have. All workers working with children and young people help with this.

There has been progress. When GIRFEC is being used it makes a positive difference.

However, we also know that GIRFEC practice is different in some areas. Good practice needs to be shared. We need to involve children and young people.

We can transform as we come out of the pandemic. We can make sure there are plans in place. We want Scotland to be the best place for children and young people to grow up.
