Getting it right for every child (GIRFEC) supports families by making sure children and young people can receive the right help, at the right time, from the right people. The aim is to help them to grow up feeling loved, safe and respected so that they can realise their full potential.
This guidance, reflects and supports Scotland's shared vision and commitment to developing a strategic approach to prevention and early intervention in tackling the significant inequalities in Scottish society. It is built on research and seeks to promote evidence-based approaches.
Realising the Ambition: Being Me builds upon the original principles and philosophy of Pre-Birth to 3 and Building the Ambition. The new guidance retains the relevant content from the previous guidance which it replaces, extending and strengthening it in line with current research and evidence about how children develop and learn.
