The Children’s Services Executive Group (CSEG) has tasked the Listening to Glasgow’s Children Group to develop a process to administer a citywide virtual consultation with children and young people on the national approach to Getting It Right For Every Child (GIRFEC).  At CSEG level, all partners have agreed to the consultation taking place.  The CSEG hopes to reach as many children and young people as possible.

The Citywide Consultation is now live and runs until 13 December 2013.  It is for children and young people aged 8 – 18.  Please brief your staff to ask all children and young people that your organisation works with to complete a questionnaire.  This can be done using the survey monkey questionnaire – or, if you prefer to organise a focus group, then ask the children and young people to complete the attached questionnaire.  All completed questionnaires should be returned to Liz Fourna, Social Work Services Planning, 3rd Floor, East City Chambers, 40 John Street, Glasgow (e mail

For more information please see the attached ‘Staff Notice’.  A copy of the questionnaire is also attached.

A report on the responses to the consultation will be published on Glasgow City Council’s ‘Getting it Right for Every Child’ web page.  Findings will also be reported to the CSEG who will use the responses to inform the strategic planning of children’s services.

Please encourage children and young people aged 8 – 18 to take part in this.
