SCRA has launched a new film for parents/carers with learning disabilities who have a child or children going through the Hearings System.

The film features two actors with learning disabilities from the Lung Ha Theatre Company in Edinburgh and a young actor from the Scottish Youth Theatre.

The film covers getting a letter from the Reporter, to going to a Children's Hearing, to getting help and advice. There is also versions of the film in British Sign Language and with subtitles.

Jennifer Orren, SCRA's Participation Officer said: "We are committed to improving our information materials for children, young people, parents and carers who are referred to the Reporter or are coming to a Children's Hearing.

"Our new film is another great addition to our suite of information materials. It provides information about the system in hopefully an easy to understand way."
