Children's Hearings Scotland (CHS)

We recruit, train and support volunteer Panel Members who make legal decisions with and for children and young people in children’s hearings, and volunteer Area Support Teams (ASTs) who provide support and guidance to Panel Members locally. You may have heard of us being referred to as the Children’s Panel too.
