The Coronavirus (Scotland) Act 2020, which came into force in April 2020, altered several procedural requirements for Children’s Hearings in Scotland. This consultation exercise considered the experiences of those involved in Children’s Hearings undertaken using video-conferencing in order to inform consideration of whether virtual hearings can facilitate participation by those who cannot, or prefer not to, attend Hearings in person. This short report highlights for young people what young people said about their experiences of Children’s Hearings when surveyed for this consultation. It is a companion report to Experiences of virtual Children’s Hearings: A rapid consultation and also Experiences of virtual Children’s Hearings: A rapid consultation – Report for Parents and carers.
