Virtual Hearings

If you are taking part in your Hearing virtually, it is important you get the help and support you need.


If you are due to attend a Children’s Hearing, you will receive a letter from the Reporter providing you with more information about the Hearing and whether it will be held at a Hearings centre or virtually.

If you need to contact your Reporter, email addresses and phone numbers are available here.

There’s lots of information about Virtual Hearings on our website.

You will meet RAVHI the Virtual Hearings Robot. RAVHI will guide you through your Virtual Hearings journey. Wherever you see RAVHI this means that help and support is available from our Virtual Hearings Team.
