Getting it Right in Fife Framework  

Getting It Right for Every Child is the overarching framework which focuses all partners’ attention on more effective and outcome-based service delivery. This is achieved by collaborating effectively, sharing information appropriately and agreeing how children and their families can be supported, ensuring Getting it Right for Every Child can become a reality.

Fife’s vision is to promote, support and safeguard the wellbeing of all children and young people in Fife. Delivering the Getting it Right for Every Child framework as our joint approach, consistently applied across all children and adult, public and voluntary sector services will achieve better outcomes for children and improve the use of resources. This will support our responsibilities within the Children and Young People (Scotland) Act 2014.

The framework explains how universal, additional and intensive services can work effectively either as single agencies, jointly or within an integrated approach to help develop and promote children and young people’s well-being.
Within the framework each service will be delivering their core work within Universal Provision. Support builds on the universal provision dependant on individual needs that may require additional or intensive support.

Child Wellbeing Pathway

The Child Wellbeing Pathway is a tool for including children, young people and their families in the decision making process in a structured way. The Child Wellbeing Pathway outlines a Getting It Right, early intervention approach to addressing emerging needs or risks. It is utilised where the Named Person identifies, or receives information that would indicate there are or may be wellbeing concerns around a child or young person. The approach is further supplemented by agreed single agency Wellbeing Assessment Tools.  The Child Wellbeing Pathway and Education Care & Welfare Wellbeing Assessment Tool is available on FISH

This Pathway is set firmly within the context of GIRFEC and the Wellbeing Indicators (SHANARRI) to assist broader assessments relating to the needs, risks and strengths pertaining to a child. This Pathway therefore supports early identification of concerns and may, as one potential outcome, lead to child protection issues being identified.
