Nurturing Me is a GIRFEC tool which captures the voice of the child. The main purpose of this is to allow the child to have their voice heard in relation to their perspective on their wellbeing. This is of particular importance when it comes to the planning process which often takes place around children/young people. Nurturing Me is a mediated tool using concrete materials which should be administered by a known adult with whom the child/young person has a trusting relationship, for example teacher, support assistant, social worker or psychologist.
The intended outcome of the tool is to provide assessment information on those people and relationships which are central to the wellbeing of the child.
More information on gathering and taking account of children and young people’s views is available in our Consulting with Children & Young People section.
