Getting it right for every child

The key statutory agencies in Angus are committed to the GIRFEC values and principles.

GIRFEC places children and young people at its heart and ensures they are listened to and understand decisions which affect them. 

It aims to ensure that there is a more co-ordinated approach where this is required to support their well-being, health and development. 

It requires that all services for children and young people work together to support children and young people.

These services include:

  • health
  • schools and learning services
  • police
  • children and families services
  • housing
  • voluntary organisations

You can find out more about GIRFEC from the Scottish Government website.
