The Children's Panel - life changing

Corporate Plan 2018-2021 Published 14 May 2018

Our Corporate Plan is an ambitious programme, and the next few years will see us deliver on some large scale projects that will have a big impact on the Children’s Hearings System.

Children's Hearings Scotland has show itself to be agile and capable in working to ensure quality hearings that put children and young people at the centre of everything we do.

The delivery of our Digital Strategy and development of the young person led Board, Our Hearings Our Voice, will transform the way we think about our work. It will also help to place more emphasis on ensuring that the voices of the children and young people we support are heard at every step of the Children’s Hearings process.

We operate in an ever changing environment which seeks to improve outcomes for children and young people, and our activities to support corporate parenting are highlighted in our Business & Corporate Parenting Plan. In the months and years ahead, we will wish to respond to new developments such as the Independent Care Review, raising the Age of Criminal Responsibility and the Scottish Goverment’s Secure Care Review, and we are keen to play our part in delivering positive change for vulnerable children and young people across Scotland.
