Scottish Labour

Date lodged: 3 November 2017

To ask the Scottish Government, further to the answer to question S5W-11406 by Jamie Hepburn on 3 October 2017, how many of the care-experienced young people being recruited by Our Hearing-Our Voice for the children’s hearing system will be in (a) full- and (b) part-time permanent positions.

Answered by: Jamie Hepburn 14 November 2017

'Our Hearings Our Voice' is aimed at recruiting around 30 young people who have had, or continue to have, experience of the children's hearings system. These positions will not be permanent employment opportunities. They will be appointments which will provide opportunities for the young people to develop a range of skills and experience, and to support the children's hearings system to better serve young people in the future.
