Our Children's Services teams in Renfrewshire operate using a set of principles called Getting It Right for Every Child (GIRFEC). This is the national multi-agency approach to improving outcomes for children and young people in Scotland.
It's our foundation for working with all children and young people. Our colleagues in adult services also use it when they work with parents or carers.
We're trying to change the way that adults think and act so that all children and young people can grow, develop and achieve their full potential. For this to happen, we need a positive shift in culture, systems and practice across services for children, young people and adults. Although we run multi-agency services, we all operate using the same GIRFEC guidelines.
