Getting it right for every child (GIRFEC) Practice Guidance 1 - Using the National Practice Model - Easy Read
This guidance on using the National Practice Model is for people who work with children, young people and families. The guidance should help people to understand more about wellbeing.
The National Practice Model
The National Practice Model is a way for workers to check on the wellbeing of a child or young person. Information will be gathered from a number of sources with the full input of the child or young person themselves.
This information will be used to make a plan to support the child or young person. This plan will draw on what the family, community and services can offer.
There will be times when workers decide that emergency action must be taken to keep a child or young person safe.
Using the National Practice Model
The National Practice Model has four steps which are listed on the following pages. The voice of the child or young person should be heard at all stages.
There are five key questions that workers should ask when thinking about a child or young person's wellbeing needs:
- What is getting in the way of wellbeing?
- Do I have all the information I need to help?
- What can I do now to help?
- What can my service do now to help?
- What other help is needed from others?
