  • Children's Services - Named Person Briefing

    Created: 27/10/2016

    As set out in the Deputy First Minister's statement on 08 September, the Scottish Government remains committed to the Named Person and the implementation of the service.  In his statement Mr Swinney announced a three month period of engagement on the information sharing provisions of the Named Person service, following the Supreme Court judgment. 

    The Supreme Court judgment on the Named Person provisions does not dilute the commitment, however, it does require Government to revise part of the legislation to ensure that it is compatible with the ECHR, which they are now working towards.

    Delivery of the GIRFEC approach including provision of Named Persons is current Scottish Government policy that will be delivered within the current legal framework.  The new Policy Document provides an update on the Scottish Government policy and may be of assistance to stakeholders in developing services to deliver the GIRFEC approach including provision of Named Persons.
