Aberdeenshire Council GIRFEC Childrens Services Plan 2017-2020

Aberdeenshire Council GIRFEC Website

Getting it right for every child and young person is a national policy to help all children and young people grow, develop and reach their full potential.   Its focus is to improve outcomes for children and their families based on a shared understanding of their wellbeing.

GIRFEC details the legislative entitlement that all children in Scotland should be:

  • Safe
  • Healthy
  • Achieving
  • Nurtured
  • Active
  • Respected
  • Responsible
  • Included

These 8 wellbeing indicators are for all children, and sometimes, in order to achieve this, we work with other services to provide the right support at the right time.
