Latest round of Hearing room improvements
A further six Hearing rooms have been given a makeover in the last few months.
Despite the Covid-19 pandemic, we have been able to fulfil our commitments to the Hearing room programme in 2020/2021. The rooms which have undergone a transformation are in Ayr, Cumbernauld, Glasgow, Paisley, Selkirk and Thurso.
Each location chose one of three options from a portfolio of designs which were created with Hearings-experienced young people, Reporters, SCRA’s Participation Officer and our Property Development Officer.
Thurso, Cumbernauld, and Paisley opted for the Scottish seascape theme, whilst Glasgow and Ayr went for the modern living room effect and Selkirk chose the green garden room. You can see a selection of images of the rooms below.
Jennifer Orren, SCRA’s Participation Officer said: “We are committed to continuing with our Hearing room improvements programme and planning is underway for the next phase of the programme in 2021/22.
“In addition, we will also be creating a dedicated sensory room in Glasgow for children, young people and families with neurodiverse conditions and will be working with partner agencies who specialise in working with people with autism and additional support needs to create this. This will be a pilot and more information will be available shortly.
“This work all ties in with our commitments to The Promise, our Corporate Parenting duties, the Better Hearings Programme and our ongoing engagement with children and young people.”
