Children’s Hearings Advocacy Support Service
This service is for advocacy workers who support children and young people in the children’s hearings system in Scotland.
Our lawyers are here to help if you:
- Have a question about the procedures in the children’s hearings system
- Have a question about the law and its application
- Are supporting a young person who feels that a decision made about them isn’t fair, or their voice was not heard or properly considered
- Think the young person you are supporting might need legal advice and/or representation.

What to expect
When you call our helpline you will be in touch with our project coordinator, Agota, who will take some core details about your enquiry and forward the information you give to an experienced, child-centred lawyer.
The lawyer will assess the information, call you back to have a chat with you and then advise how best to proceed. This can take the form of the lawyer providing you with the necessary information and options available so that you can advise the young person, or they may advise that the young person will benefit from instructing a lawyer to represent them
