Have your say on Bairns’ Hoose

Consultation on the draft standards for Scotland’s Bairns’ Hoose, that supports a child-centred response to health and justice for victims or witnesses of serious crime and abuse, is now open.

To give children and young people with experience of the justice system the opportunity to share their views, CYCJ is holding an in-person group session, on October 18 at 5.30pm.

Please email julia.swann@strath.ac.uk to discuss and book your place – and do share this with children and young people that this might apply to.
