Another three Hearing rooms are getting a face lift.

As part of SCRA’s ongoing commitment to improve Hearing rooms, work has started this week on the latest round of improvements.

Three rooms are being given a makeover – Bellshill, Dalkeith and Falkirk.

Hearings-experienced young people have worked with interior designers to create a portfolio of three design options to choose from.

The first route is a warm green outdoor theme, the second is an indoor peaceful theme made up primarily of gentle blues and yellows, and the third, a Scottish seascape theme with blues and mauves.

Bellshill has opted for the green/outdoor theme, Dalkeith has chosen the indoor peaceful theme, and Falkirk has chosen the Scottish seascape theme.

The work on the rooms will be completed by the end of March. Watch this space for photographs of the new look rooms!

Following consultation with Hearings experienced young people SCRA started revamping Hearing rooms in 2015 with the first pilot in Glasgow. Since then a total of 19 new look rooms have been introduced.

The rooms are less formal than traditional Hearing rooms with different seating options, coffee tables, soft furnishings and plants. As part of the project, we are working closely with Children’s Hearings Scotland who have been fully supportive of the new rooms.
