Working with parents, carers, and professionals to support disabled children and young people, and those living with long term conditions.

Our project is aimed at raising awareness of how Getting it Right for Every Child (GIRFEC) can support disabled children and those living with long term conditions, their parents, and carers.

Getting it right for every child (GIRFEC) isn’t just a policy; it’s vision to make Scotland the best place for every child to grow up. It aims to provide all children, young people and families with the right support at the right time – so that every child and young person can reach their full potential.

To support the sector, we deliver free GIRFEC training for professionals and volunteers across Scotland which is CPD accredited. Throughout the year, we host open training sessions for anyone to register. We also offer bespoke training sessions to third sector organisations.

We also seek to amplify your voice. As well as collating participants’ feedback about the training sessions, we respond to Scottish Government consultations about GIRFEC, and provide reports to the Scottish Government to help inform GIRFEC guidance and practice, promoting the voice of children and young people, their parents, and carers.

Don’t miss out on future updates. Sign up to our children and young people newsletter by emailing the team.
