HIGHLAND COUNCIL CHILDREN’S PANEL

Around 2,500 amazing people volunteer to be part of the Children’s Panel in Scotland.

We’re here to make sure all of Highland’s infants, children and young people feel safe, loved, valued and respected. It’s an important and responsible role that is hugely rewarding.

This year, Highland Panel needs lots of people like you to come forward and apply.

2019’s Panel Member recruitment campaign runs until, and including, 17 September so you need to take action soon.

WHAT WE DO

Panel Members take part in children’s hearings. They listen to and make important legal decisions with and for children and young people in Scotland.

WHAT YOU’LL GAIN

Skills including team work, leadership and a nationally recognised qualification. Plus, you’ll be supporting children and young people in your local community.

WHO WE’RE LOOKING FOR

In a word – YOU.  There’s no one type of person or background that makes the ideal volunteer Panel Member. We want people who are good listeners, are compassionate and caring.

This year, Highland needs volunteers for the Children’s Panel in all areas of the Highland Council.

If you are interested in joining us, please go online and apply before the 18th of September to www.childrenspanelscotland.org      We look forward to hearing from you.
