Young people’s views wanted on the Children’s Hearings System

The Scottish Government have commissioned Who Cares? Scotland and social researchers The Lines Between Ltd to gather the views of children and young people who have experience of the Children’s Hearing System (CHS).

The national consultation will focus on advocacy within the Children’s Hearing System in Scotland, with the aim of ensuring that every child has access to advocates who understand their needs, and follow the principles required when working in this area.

Workshops and a short online survey will be used to collect opinions on the role of advocacy in the Hearing’s System.

The online survey is anonymous and will close on January 28.


As well as the online survey, workshops will take place in three locations across Scotland.

  • Clachnaharry, Old Public School, 20 High Street, Inverness, IV3 8RB between 4:30pm and 6:30pm on the 22nd of January 2018
  • Who Cares? Scotland, Capital City Partnership, The Canon Mill, 1-3 Canon Street, Edinburgh, EH3 5HE between 5pm and 7pm on the 24th of January 2018.
  • Who Cares? Scotland, 5 Oswald Street, Glasgow, G1 4QR between 5pm and 7pm on the 25th of January 2018.
