An exciting new piece of work is underway led by corporate parent, the Scottish Children’s Reporter Administration (SCRA).
A Project Team which includes Hearings-experienced young people and adults has been set up and the first planning meeting was held at the end of June. The aim of the Keeping The Promise project – which is being piloted in the Western Isles – is to improve the understanding of children and young people about what measures in their Compulsory Supervision Orders mean for them.
Children and young people attending Hearings will be offered a post Hearing meeting with the Reporter to explain the decision in language that is clear, understandable and protects their rights. The team is planning to develop an ‘understand my Hearing’ toolkit to support the delivery of this project. Thank you to Our Hearings, Our Voice for working with us on this.
