The Children's Hearings system relies on the involvement of around 2,500 Children's Panel volunteers in Scotland who give their time and commitment to training and serving as children's panel members.
A Children's Hearing is a lay tribunal of three members. It must not be wholly male or female and aims to have a balance of age and experience. One of the three panel members will chair the hearing. The hearing considers and makes decisions on the welfare of the child.
Some children are vulnerable and need support. By volunteering for The Children's Panel you can help neglected, abused and troubled children get their lives back on track. All you need to do is give your time. Getting involved won't just change a child's life, it'll change yours too.
Fife Council provides information about how to become a member of the children's panel.
