Garry Coutts

Chair of the Board


Appointed 8 April 2014

"Hi, I’m Garry and I feel so lucky to be the Chair of the CHS Board. I get to work with great Board members, a brilliant staff team, wonderful volunteers and an amazing bunch of children and young people who are all doing their best to make the hearings system as positive as possible.

I have extensive governance experience and a wide range of board experience, having served as an elected councillor on both Edinburgh and Highland Councils, I have also sat on the Looked After Children’s Strategic Implementation Group and chaired its Strategic Commissioning Group.

I also sit as the Chair of the University of the Highlands and Islands Board of Governors. Before that I held the position of Chair of the Scottish Social Services Council, as well as being Chair of the Board of NHS Highlands.

I am confident that, together, we can really make a difference and help make Scotland the best place to grow up for our infants, children and young people."
