During the lockdown, all Children's Hearings centres are closed. Children’s Hearings are now being held virtually online.

Only Hearings required for the urgent and immediate protection of a child/young person are taking place or where required to protect an expiring order.  All non-essential Hearings have been rescheduled and will take place at the earliest date possible.

Children and young people have the right to have a trusted adult, an advocacy worker or lawyer attend virtual Hearings to provide support.
