How We Work

3.1 Our aim is to help children, young people and those who care for them to be aware of the things that pose them the greatest risk. Simultaneously, we wish to offer advice on how to minimise or remove those risks from their lives.

3.2The picture on page 9 depicts how Police Scotland as a single service works with partners to implement Getting It Right For Every Child (GIRFEC). Local officers are there to be visible within the communities they serve. We work in partnership with local services including health, schools and other specialists within local authorities, including social workers. To support our local officers there are additional resources available when required. They are depicted in the references to “Early Intervention” and“ Tailored Services” shown in the kites. How those services work together are explained in the following sections.
