Improvement collaboratives

National Improvement Collaborative

The Story of our journey towards the Children and Young People Improvement Collaborative from Children and Families on Vimeo.

The Children and Young People Improvement Collaborative (CYPIC) is a national collaborative focused on delivering quality improvement throughout the child’s journey, with community planning partnerships, schools and third sector partners. Just like Getting It Right For Every Child (GIRFEC), the CYPIC puts the needs of children and their families at the centre of everything they do.
You can find more information on the collaborative and read their Highlights Newsletters on the Scottish Government site.
