The Children's Panel - life changing

About Children's Hearings Scotland


Children’s Hearings Scotland is a national non-departmental public body which was formed in June 2013. We are one of a number of organisations who work within the Children’s Hearings System, including the Scottish Children’s Reporter Administration, local authorities, health and Police Scotland.

Our role is to recruit, train and support around 2,500 skilled volunteer Panel Members who sit on children’s hearings. We also support a network of 22 volunteer led Area Support Teams.

Children’s Hearings Scotland works to a set of National Standards and we are focused on ensuring that our Vision, Mission and Values are upheld and visible in everything we do.
