Our purpose is to work together to safeguard our children and promote their wellbeing which we do on behalf of everyone who lives or works in Inverclyde.
We believe that:-
• At all times the child or young person’s protection and welfare must come first
• Children and young people have a right to be heard, to be listened to and to be taken seriously
• Consideration must be given to a child or young person’s gender, ethnicity, culture and religious persuasion in all matters and decisions affecting them;
• Children, young people and their families have a right to be kept informed throughout any process affecting them.
We hope you find the information you are looking for on our website.
