Background

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 Monday 15 September 2014.  The Eilean Siar Area Support Team is looking to recruit approximately 5 new members.
