National Third Sector GIRFEC Project

National Third Sector GIRFEC (Getting It Right For Every Child) Project

The National Third Sector GIRFEC Project  is a unique Public Social Partnership (PSP) between a core group of organisations. They include Barnardo's Scotland, Voluntary Action Scotland and the Improvement Service, with support from other third sector partners including Coalition of Care and Support Providers in Scotland (CCPS) and the Scottish Government

The Projects main outcomes are Promote, Support & Collaborate, and this is achieved by doing the following activities

  • Delivery of support to develop or strengthen local third sector engagement infrastructure to raise awareness about and enable effective participation and representation in children's services planning, e.g. voluntary sector children’s forums
  • Delivery of local workshops aimed at third sector organisations on a range of themes and using tools developed by the project, including: understanding wellbeing, aligning outcomes to wellbeing, using the third sector touchpoints
  • Organisation and delivery of networking and learning events for stakeholders within Children’s Services, including third sector providers, community groups and statutory partners working with children and young people
