Coronavirus Update: Children's Hearings

Following this week’s announcement from the First Minister, we have been working with the Scottish Government and Scottish Children’s Reporter Administration to understand what this means for children’s hearings. We are committed to ensuring the continued delivery and safety for all participating in children’s hearings across Scotland.

In recent months with restrictions having eased, more children’s hearings were being held face to face. However, in light of the new Omicron variant and taking into account advice from the Scottish Government, over the festive period and early into the new year, whilst some children’s hearings might be held face to face, most children’s hearings will be held virtually. 

At this time, we would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone attending children’s hearings for their continued cooperation and support.
