What GIRFEC means for Children, Young People and Families

For Children, Young People and Families, GIRFEC means:

  • You understand what is happening and why
  • You have been listened to carefully and your wishes have been heard, understood and taken into consideration
  • You feel confident about the help you are getting
  • You are appropriately involved in discussions and decisions that affect you
  • You can rely on appropriate help being available as soon as possible
  • You experience a more straightforward and co-ordinated response from the people working with you

This new approach does not change the way you would report child protection concerns.
