The search for new Children’s Panel members has launched, with volunteers needed in the Angus area.

Local people who think they have what it takes to help vulnerable children and young people, are being urged to join the 2,500 volunteers across the country who make up the national Children’s Panel.

Panel members play a crucial role in helping neglected, troubled and abused children and young people, attending hearings to address the needs and behaviour of those who face serious problems in their life.

To find out more about the panel, call 0844 848 3407, text CHILD to 61611 or visit www.childrenspanelscotland.org
