Our Keeping The Promise Commitment to you

SCRA is committed to improving our service to everyone that comes into contact with us. Providing a good level of service to children, young people, parents/carers, volunteers and professionals, is really important to us.

We want to ensure the children and young people involved in the Children’s Hearings System have the best experience they can realistically have, at what is likely to be a very difficult time for them.

Therefore, our Keeping The Promise Commitment sets out what people can expect from SCRA and it includes the level of co-operation we expect in return.
