New British Sign Language video informs children & parents or carers of the GIRFEC approach

A new video series has been launched with the aim of informing children and young people, their parents and carers about the Getting it Right for Every Child (GIRFEC) approach.
Produced by the Health and Social Care Alliance Scotland (the ALLIANCE) in partnership with the Scottish Council on Deafness, People First and the youth theatre company Solar Bear, the BSL format videos are designed to be accessible to a wide range of children and adults, particularly those who are deaf.
The five part series was launched last week by the Minister for Children and Young People, Aileen Campbell MSP, parents and children from the deaf community and by practitioners and teachers from third sector organisations and schools who support them.
The launch showcased the videos and gave young people, parents and carers the opportunity to express their views around key aspects of GIRFEC, including the importance of inclusive communication, the role of the Named Person, and the change in culture needed to make sure the GIRFEC approach is used by everyone.
