Child protection consultancy service in Scotland
Our child protection consultancy service raises awareness of child wellbeing and protection issues for organisations within the Getting it Right for every child (GIRFEC) framework.
Together we explore the steps that can be taken to improve policies, standards and practice. This could be through structural, policy or procedural changes, and may involve practice reviews or audits. We also work with organisations following a critical incident where circumstances have led to the potential harm or actual harm of a child.
