What will we be doing to raise awareness of GIRFEC?

  • GIRFEC Information sessions for Practitioners
    These sessions are designed to raise awareness of the GIRFEC approach so staff working in health and social care feel confident in their knowledge and understanding of GIRFEC and how it can play a role in their work to support children and young people.
  • GIRFEC ‘Training for Trainers’ Workshops
    A package has been developed to be used by others working in this field who wish to deliver GIRFEC information sessions themselves. ‘Training for Trainers’ sessions will be aimed towards third sector organisations working directly with children, young people and parents and towards Community Planning Partnerships.
  • GIRFEC information materials for Parents and Carers
    We have created materials designed for parents and carers which are freely accessible and can also be used by other organisations who deliver training.

Our training is CPD accredited and is available online and in person across Scotland for free. If you would like bespoke training at your organisation, please email

Please note, trainings are only CPD accredited when delivered by the ALLIANCE.
