Children's Panel Volunteers

  • VO68404


Description

Children's Panel members are ordinary people like you who have chosen to do something extraordinary. Children's Panel members make decisions about the welfare of vulnerable children and young people and what needs to be done to support and protect children and young people.
Being a member of the Children's Panel could change your life, and make a difference to someone else's. Many people join because they want to make a valuable contribution to their community. Others enjoy the skills development that membership of the Children's Panel can bring. Many of the skills that make a good panel member are also highly valued in the workplace such as negotiation, leadership, communication and teamwork.
You don't need any formal qualifications. You just need to care.
We are now recruiting 550 new panel members to serve across Scotland. Have you got what it takes?
