GETTING IT RIGHT FOR EVERY CHILD AND YOUNG PERSON

Getting it right is a way of working consistently and supportively with all Scotland's children, young people, and their families and acting quickly if they need help.

It's being used in families, schools, nurseries, health care, social work, law enforcement, housing and some support services for adults. It has been designed to thread through all services and areas that involve children and young people of any age.

Taking care of our children's well-being and making sure they are alright - even before they are born - helps us ensure the most positive outcomes for them later in life. It gives them the potential to grow up ready to succeed and play their part in society. For more information about what's happening in East Lothian, go to our Getting it right for every child _ young person in East Lothian web site.

SUPPORT FROM THE START

Support from the start logo

The question being addressed through Support from the Start is ‘How do we support our children to be healthy and happy?', with a particular focus on achieving a better outcome for the most vulnerable children. East Lothian has made a commitment to ensuring joined up local service responses to health inequalities in the early years of life, pre birth - age eight. The main aim has been to facilitate and enable mainstream services to deliver support in a different and more effective way in response to community identified needs and strengths. The key principles which underpin ‘Support from the Start' are community engagement, learning and leadership.
