The Deputy First Minister has announced today he will bring forward a Bill that will include new provisions on when and how information can be shared by and with the Named Person service. The intention is to introduce the Bill ahead of the summer recess. This approach will involve replacing some of the provisions in the Act that the Supreme Court was concerned about, with new provisions requiring Named Person service providers and others involved with children and young people to consider whether sharing information would promote, support or safeguard the wellbeing of the child or young person; and requiring them then to consider whether sharing that information would be compatible with data protection law, human rights and the law of confidentiality. Only if information can be shared consistently within these legal constraints will there be a power to share it and the legislation will make this clear.

Getting it right for every child (GIRFEC)

It is intended as a framework that will allow organisations who work on behalf of the country's children and their families to provide a consistent, supportive approach for all. It requires that services aimed at children and young people — social work , health , education , police , housing and voluntary organisations — adapt and streamline their systems and practices and work together. The approach encourages earlier intervention by professionals to avoid crisis situations at a later date. The origins of the approach can be traced back to the Kilbrandon Report , [4] reinforced by publications such as 'For Scotland's Children'. Development and early implementation of this approach took place across Scotland. In Highland there were pathfinder projects that launched in September followed by an implementation phase that began in January Implementation of GIRFEC has included some change management elements, with a programme designed to achieve some consistency around meeting the needs of — and improving outcomes for — all children and young people in Scotland.
