    Opportunity


    About this opportunity:***UPDATE: current campaign now closed . To be notified of any upcoming recruitment campaigns please register your interest via Panel Members (chscotland.gov.uk)

    CHS are recruiting for volunteers across Scotland to help support Scotland's most vulnerable infants, children and young people. We are looking for a diverse range of enthusiastic people aged 18 and over who can show empathy, compassion, trust and who have great listening skills.

    Panel Members are volunteers from local communities who take part in children's hearings. Their role is to listen and make legal decisions with and for infants, children and young people. They are there to ensure that the young person is at the heart of every decision made - because every decision, no matter how big or small, has an impact on the life of the child or young person in the hearing.

    CHS offer a great training and development programme and have a very supportive and experienced team who will help you along your journey in becoming a panel member.
