Supporting Families: a Review of the Implementation of Part 12 : Children at Risk of Becoming Looked After as Set Out in the Children and Young People (Scotland) Act 2014

Research output: Book/ReportBook

Abstract

The Scottish Government states that Scotland should be the best place for children to grow up. Over the last ten years, the Scottish Government has developed, Getting it Right for Every Child (GIRFEC), a national approach to improve the wellbeing of children and young people in Scotland. This builds on a growing body of evidence demonstrating the value of supporting children and families at the earliest opportunity, rather than waiting until families reach crisis point to provide support. Building on the assets within families and communities to prevent children from becoming looked after is identified as a key principle in the Scottish Government's (2015) Getting it Right for Looked after Children and Young People Strategy.
