Pregnancy, Babies, Children & Young People

Puppet Show

Young people are our future. With numerous sources saying that our brain stops developing in our mid to late 20's -                I have chosen to class young people as those who are 0-25. 

In the UK, we follow GIRFEC.

Also known as

"Getting It Right For Every Child".


young people are entitled to...

SAFE - know how to keep themselves safe, who they can go to.

HEALTHY - eat a balanced diet, exercise, keep clean, and have friends. 

ACHIEVING - have the chance to learn, practice, win, work hard, and be told how great they are.

NURTURED - to have places they know they belong with friends and family.

ACTIVE - to exercise, play, dance, enjoy games, and go on outdoor adventures.

RESPECTED - to be listened too and valued, to be involved, and make choices.

RESPONSIBLE - to follow instructions, be a role model, help others, and follow rules. 

INCLUDED - to have a family and friends, to work together, to take part in different things, to be heard.
