The website aims to help children find and access both support and representation from a children’s advocacy worker for children’s hearings.

The website has launched as part of provisions in the Children’s Hearings (Scotland) Act 2011 that will come into force on 21st November 2020. These provisions place a duty on the Chair of the hearing to inform the child of advocacy services.
