Scottish Children’s Reporter Administration

The Children’s Hearings System provides the operational setting in which SCRA and our partner agencies work. The aim is to provide a safety net for vulnerable children and deliver tailored solutions which meet the needs of the individuals involved, while helping to build stronger families and safer communities.

SCRA's role and purpose

Focused on children most at risk, SCRA's role and purpose are to:

  • Make effective decisions about a need to refer a child to a Children’s Hearing
  • Enable children and families to participate in Hearings
  • Provide suitable accommodation and facilities for Children's Hearings
  • Disseminate information and data to inform and influence improved outcomes for children and young people.
