Young People

What does 'Getting It Right For Every Child' mean for me?

As a young person, Getting it Right for every young person means that all those people that have a responsibility to help you will make sure that they do their best to keep you safe, healthy, and help you to achieve your potential. They will assist you to get the support and advice that you may need and will involve you in decisions that affect you. People, agencies and the community in which you live will need to work together (only when needed) to support you.

The Getting It Right For Every Child approach

For children, young people and their families:

  • They understand what is happening and why
  • They have been listened to carefully and their wishes have been heard and understood
  • They will feel confident about the help they are getting
  • They are appropriately involved in discussions and decisions that affect them
  • They can rely on appropriate help being available as soon as possible
  •  They will have experienced a more streamlined and co-ordinated response from practitioners


Every child and young person is entitled to support throughout their learning journey until the age of 18.  If you require additional support this will be arranged for you.

Getting it Right for you is based on the Children's Charter.  This is what you say you want:

  • get to know us
  • speak with us and listen to us
  • take us seriously and involve us
  • respect our privacy
  • be responsible to us
  • think about our lives as a whole
  • think carefully about how you use information about us
  • put us in touch with the right people
  • use your power to help
  • make things happen when they should
  • help us be safe

My Well-being Wheel

The eight sections of the wheel show the areas where you may need support in order for you to do well now or in the future. The sections are : Safe, Healthy, Achieving, Nurtured, Active, Respected, Responsible and Included.  We remember this as SHANARRI.

The adults who are supporting you may use the wheel to record things they notice, including any concerns and will use this to decide on support which may become part of your plan.

My World Triangle

Your world is looked at around a triangle, with you in the middle.  The different sides of the triangle show:

  1. Your growth and development.  This includes information about what you are like, what you are good at and also about your health.
  2. What you need from family and people who care for you.
  3. My wider world which includes the community you live in.

You will be asked about each side of the triangle and will chat about the things that help you (strengths) and the things that make life harder for you (pressures).  These can be used in your plan to help things get better for you.
