Being a Panel Member in Central and West Lothian

As part of your role as a Panel Member in Central and West Lothian you will be expected to commit to sit on one - two children’s hearings every month and also to attend at least four learning and development opportunities per year.

Prospective Panel Members are expected to live or work within the geographical boundaries of one local authority area but may have the opportunity to sit as a Panel Member in any area within Central and West Lothian.
