Coronavirus has caused major disruptions and challenges in the lives of families across the country. Scottish Government restrictions have changed how families access support and how Children’s Hearings are held. Hearings have been mostly virtual meetings, and as restrictions ease, they may be a mix of virtual and in-person hearings for the foreseeable future.
Children 1st is working alongside the Scottish Children’s Reporters Administration (SCRA) to make sure families feel supported and their rights are upheld, throughout the virtual Children’s Hearings being held because of the coronavirus pandemic.
You can take a look at the Children's Hearings Scotland website for more information on Hearings.
You can also look at our Parentline service who can help you understand how your virtual hearing will work, how you can have your voices and views heard and what your rights are.
Please feel free to contact them by calling free on 08000 28 22 33 or you can start a live webchat on our Parentline webpages.
