The GIRFEC ethos in Inverclyde

"ENTERPRISING Gourock Primary pupils opened their very own cafe and a lot of money is now brewing for a good cause."

"Youngsters have set up their own business to help raise money for fellow students in Malawi and promote the ‘getting it right for every child’ (GIRFEC) ethos in Inverclyde."

"Their new GIRFEC Games Cafe launched recently and went down a storm with parents, staff and invited guests."

"As well as setting up the tearoom and serving customers, the pupils baked their own cakes which they sold alongside cuppas."

Oh wait !
"The 'Named Person' service has not started yet - we are still waiting on a date from the Scottish Government. Once the service starts we will list details of how to contact a Named Person." (last updated 24 August 2016)

Mmmm. Promoting the GIRFEC ethos in the GIRFEC Games Café went down a storm with parents, staff and invited guests.

It boggles the mind.

As part of their ambitious plan Inverclyde put forward Nurturing Inverclyde: Working together to get it right for every child, citizen and community and has implemented a fully integrated multi-agency family support service in partnership with Barnardo's.
So this monumental service is just sitting there waiting for the nod from the Deputy First Minister to get it up and running.

Expect fireworks that day in the true spirit of GIRFEC.
