Category: Education, Leisure and Cultural Activities

Adam Ingram MSP, Minister for Children and Early Years, launched the Guide to Implementing GIRFEC at The Children's Summit on 23rd June 2010.

The Guide draws on examples of best practice and experience to date, and sets out what has worked well in pathfinder and learning partnership areas where the Getting it right approach has already been rolled out. It can be used by stakeholders as part of their own training and implementation plans and help them identify their local priorities for action. It will help them build on existing good practice. People can use it in conjunction with themed evaluations and other reports and material already available on the Scottish Government GIRFEC webpages.

The Guide will be made available to strategic managers, operational managers and practitioners in all sectors and agencies that provide children's services in Scotland. It is available to download from the Scottish Government website, with limited hard copies on request from the GIRFEC team. Members of the Getting it right team are engaging in face-to-face discussion with stakeholders to establish how best to support them as they implement the Getting it right approach.
