The Children’s Panel is the largest legal tribunal in Scotland, making decisions to help the lives of vulnerable children and young people. Children’s Hearings put children and young people first. Panel members have to deal with cases that are often complex, difficult and emotionally challenging. They play a vital role in the Children’s Hearings System, generously giving their time, skills and commitment to make decisions based on sound reasons in the best interest of each child or young person, aimed at improving his or her life.
Children's Hearings Scotland (CHS) will be recruiting for over 500 new volunteers to join its community as Children's Panel members. Applications to join the Children’s Panel are open now and until 25 September 2016.
