Help out children’s panel
People in Rutherglen and Cambuslang are being asked to volunteer for the Children’s Panel in South Lanarkshire.
The Children’s Panel, which is unique to Scotland, improves outcomes for troubled or at-risk children and young people in need of care or who have offended.
Children’s Hearings Scotland issued the call for new volunteers in South Lanarkshire as part of a six- week long recruitment campaign.
They’re hoping to help fill the 560 panel roles needed nationally in 2016.
An information evening will be held at 7pm on September 9 in the Corporate Dining Room, Council Offices, Almada Street in Hamilton.
Applicants need to be 18 or over. The deadline for applications is September 30. See www. childrenspanelscotland.org
