Children's Panel members have been making decisions about the welfare of vulnerable children and young people at risk since children's hearings were first established in 1971.  Children's Panel members are vital to Scotland's Children's Hearings System.  Panel members are lay members of the community, aged 18 or over and come from a wide range of backgrounds.   They are unpaid volunteers who are appointed to the panel for a period of three years at a time.

A national recruitment campaign for new panel members in Scotland is currently taking place, with the closing date of 30 September 2015.  The Eilean Siar Area Support Team is looking to recruit approximately 5 new members.

Anyone who is interested in becoming a member of the Children's Panel in the Western Isles can provide their contact details to the address, email or telephone number below.
