What GIRFEC means for professionals working in children services and adult services
- the child or young person is at the centre of your work, understanding what their unique needs are and how you can help
- you use common tools, language and processes to consider a child or young person's wellbeing, working closely with them, their parent(s) and other professionals, supporting them where appropriate
- you feel confident that you have the right information to provide the best support you can to a child or young person and their parent(s).
You can find GIRFEC paperwork / documents on our Resources for Professionals.
This new approach does not change the way you would report child protection concerns.
