Proposal for the development of guidance to support the GIRFEC provisions in the Children and Young People (Scotland) Act, 14/04

The Scottish Government has published a proposed outline of the statutory guidance that will support Parts 4, 5 and 18 of the Children and Young People (Scotland) Act.

This document is a proposed outline of the full statutory guidance that will support Parts 4 (Named Person), 5 (Child's Plan) and 18 (General) of the Children and Young People (Scotland) Act.

The aim of this guidance framework document is to provide some contextual background to the legislative provisions in relation to the Getting it right for every child (GIRFEC) approach, its implementation across Scotland, and to indicate the areas and issues which will be covered by the full statutory guidance.

For full details see the Scottish Government website.
