Children’s Hearings System | Vision and Values Review

14 July 2016 | tagged Current issues

The Children’s Hearings Improvement Partnership (CHIP) have published a new vision and values statement for the Children’s Hearings System, and are keen to get your views on this work, its content and its relevance. 

CHIP brings together a range of agencies and key interests who have responsibility for the successful delivery of Scotland’s Hearings System.

One of the priority activities for CHIP in 2015/16 was the creation of a statement of vision and values which reflects the enduring ethos of the Children’s Hearings System.

The vision and values were to include the following key components:-

  • understanding of each other’s roles and responsibilities in the Hearing system
  • respect for the roles and responsibilities of others – demonstrated through constructive, positive behaviours, consistent with the ethos of the Hearing System
  • a commitment to the principle of paramount concern of ‘best interests’ of the child/young person in all elements of our contributions, actions  and decision making

The vision and values will be reviewed over the course of the next 9 months to assess whether they are having the right kind of impact and what further development and refinement is required. 

Please send your views via the CHIP website www.chip-partnership.co.uk/contact-us/ or email Neil Hunter directly on neil.hunter@scra.gsi.gov.uk or 0300 200 1547.
