Focused on children and young people most at risk, SCRA’s role and purpose is to:

  • Make effective decisions about a need to refer a child/young person to a Children’s Hearing
  • Prepare for and participate in court proceedings where statement of grounds or Hearings findings are appealed and ensure the wellbeing of children and young people – particularly vulnerable witnesses – are protected throughout the court process
  • Support Panel Members (though we are not involved in making Hearing decisions) and ensure fair process in Hearings
  • Enable children, young people and families to participate in Hearings
  • Disseminate information and data to influence, inform and reassure
  • Provide premises for Hearings to take place; and to
  • Work collaboratively with partners to support and facilitate the Getting it Right For Every Child (GIRFEC) agenda.
