Getting It Right For Every Child (GIRFEC)

Most of you will have a loving family to support you to grow and develop. Friends, teachers, health visitors, youth workers, and others can also help to make sure that your wellbeing is the best it can be, and that you have all the help, advice and guidance you need as you grow up.

There may be times, however, when you might need some extra advice and help if things are not going so well for you. Getting it right for every child (GIRFEC for short) encourages all the adults in your life to look out for your wellbeing and to offer help if you or your family need it.

The idea behind GIRFEC is that if we can help you when your problems or worries are little, then we can hopefully stop them getting too big for you.

GIRFEC means that the adults in your life have a responsibility to look after your wellbeing and make sure you can become the best you can be.
