The Children's Panel - life changing

Working in partnership

People At Table Illustrated GraphicOur vision is of a Children’s Hearings System where everyone works together, making sure that all children and young people are cared for and protected, and their views are heard, respected and valued.

We work with partners across the Children's Hearings System to achieve this vision.

CHIP is made up of a range of partners who work together, sharing ideas and co-ordinating our efforts to improve services for children and young people.

CHIP is made up of 16 member organisations including the Scottish Government, Scottish Children's Reporter Administration (SCRA), CELCIS, Scottish Social Services Council, Police Scotland and the Safeguarders Panel.
