The annual national search for 500 new Children’s Panel volunteers has been launched.

There are currently over 2,500 volunteer Panel Members across Scotland, however new recruits from a range of backgrounds are needed each year to ensure the system continues to offer the best support.
This year, Children’s Hearings Scotland is also keen to hear from those interested in supporting the work of the panel through becoming a volunteer Area Support Team member.
Boyd McAdam, National Convener and Chief Executive of Children’s Hearings Scotland said: “What unites our volunteers is their genuine compassion and dedication. We need people from all backgrounds to make sure we continue to help change the lives of those children and young people who attend Children’s Hearings for the better.
“For those interested in taking the next step, I’d encourage them to visit our recruitment website, or head along to one of the local information evenings being held across the country to meet other panel members and find out more about the commitment required.”
