The Children's Hearings System
The Children's Hearings system is Scotland's care and justice system for children and young people. It exists to protect the safety and wellbeing of infants, children and young people across Scotland. The Scottish Children's Reporter Administration and Children's Hearings Scotland are key statutory organisations within this system. It is not proposed that either of these organisations are within the scope of the NCS. Their independence, and that of the Reporter, are key components to the system. The system plays a critical role in the social services provided to children through the decision-making functions.
