Since just before lockdown, virtual Hearings have been taking place. However, as lockdown restrictions started to ease, planning has been taking place to reintroduce face to face Hearings. Traditional, face to face Hearings will only be able to take place with strict social distancing measures in place. There is a phased approach across Scotland.
Glasgow will be one of the first to gradually reintroduce Hearings in Bell Street.
Locality Reporter Managers in Glasgow have been working with partners in the city to ensure Children’s Hearings are reintroduced safely, with all the appropriate measures in place. A briefing has been prepared by the Glasgow CHIP on plans to reintroduce face to face Hearings which you can view here.
