Children's Hearings Scotland

Children's Hearings Scotland aims to improve the lives and opportunities of Scotland's most vulnerable children and young people, through the recruitment, selection, training, retention and support of Scotland's 2,500 volunteer Children's Panel members.

The Children's Panel is the largest legal tribunal in Scotland. Volunteer panel members make decisions in the best interests of each child or young person attending a Children's Hearing. Find out more about volunteering on the Children's Panel website.
