Vision and values for the Children's Hearing System in Scotland

Read the newly published CHIP statement

The Children’s Hearings Improvement Partnership (CHIP) brings together a range of agencies and key interests who have responsibility for the successful delivery of Scotland’s Hearings System.

One of the priority activities for CHIP in 2015/16 was the creation of a statement of vision and values which reflects the enduring ethos of the Children’s Hearings System. You can now read the statement which includes the following key components:

  • 1. Understanding of each other’s roles and responsibilities in the Hearing system 
  • 2. Respect for the roles and responsibilities of others – demonstrated through constructive, positive behaviours, consistent with the ethos of the Hearing System 
  • 3. A commitment to the principle of paramount concern of ‘best interests’ of the child/young person in all elements of our contributions, actions and decision making 

As a CHIP partner we're pleased to be able to support the promotion of this statement of vision and values, which we believe positively captures a common commitment to working together to improve the outcomes of some of Scotland’s most vulnerable and at risk children and young people.

The vision and values will be reviewed in the course of the next 9 months to assess whether they're having the right kind of impact and what further development and refinement is required. We're very keen to get your views on this work, its content and its relevance. Please contact the CHIP website
