The Children and Young People (Scotland) Act 2014 – Preparing to make a difference

We are delighted to announce the date has been set for our annual collaborative GIRFEC conference for Tuesday 4th November 2014 in the Stirling Management Centre, University of Stirling.

The focus of this year’s conference is the Children and Young People (Scotland) Act 2014. Perhaps the most significant piece of child welfare legislation since the Children (Scotland) Act 1995, this new legislation has significant implications for the delivery of services for children and young people. The conference will explore three key elements of the Act

  • The role of the named person
  • The child’s plan
  • Information sharing

The conference is directed at practitioners and managers who are currently working within the Getting It Right framework and responding to the requirements of the new legislation. The programme will include presentations from key academics, practitioners and service users, showcasing innovative practice developments and exploring the implications of the Act. A range of presentation styles will provide excellent opportunities for learning, reflection and discussion. Feedback from the conference plenary will inform a strategic managers’ GIRFEC conference in 2015 so this is a unique opportunity to inform the development of services

Please note - the conference is now fully subscribed.
