A new Keeping The Promise project is underway in the Western Isles called Understanding my Hearing (Before, During and After).

The project team, which includes Hearings-experienced young people and adults, has been set up and the first planning meeting was held earlier this year.

The aim of the project is to improve the understanding of children and young people about what measures in their Compulsory Supervision Orders mean for them.

Children and young people attending Hearings will be offered a post Hearing meeting with the Reporter to explain the decision in language that is clear, understandable and protects their rights.

The team is planning to develop an ‘Understand my Hearing’ toolkit to support the delivery of this project.

A massive thank you to Our Hearings, Our Voice and the young people from the Western Isles for working with us on this. We look forward to seeing how the project develops.
