Call for examples of good practice in partnership working to reduce inequalities for children and young people

The National Third Sector GIRFEC Project aims to reduce inequalities for children, young people and families by creating, nurturing and enabling partnerships within and between the third and statutory sectors to ensure best use of resources. We do this by supporting Community Planning Partners including Third Sector Interfaces (TSIs) to develop and strengthen the role of the third sector in the planning, development and delivery of children’s services across Scotland.  One of the key elements of the project is to ensure that the knowledge, skills and networks of the third sector are consistently embedded and widely shared.

The project team is currently putting together a collection of good practice to promote the positive impact partnership can make on outcomes for children, families and communities.  These examples will be collated into a document and distributed widely to Community Planning Partners and other relevant stakeholders including politicians. Therefore we are seeking short case studies which demonstrate good practice in effective partnership to reduce inequalities for children, young people and families.

Under this general objective, we are particularly interested in the following themes:

  • Cross-sector partnership working where there is a genuine third sector involvement
  • Tackling inequalities for children and young people which has an emphasis on prevention and is carried out in partnership (this could be a cross-sector partnership or collaboration between nationals and local community organisations).
  • Sharing resources between agencies to create better outcomes for children
