Hearing About Me

Have your say at your Hearing – fill in your Hearing About Me form. It’s important everyone knows how you are.

Why should I fill in the Hearing About Me form?

Sometimes you might find it difficult to speak at your Hearing. The Hearing About Me Form lets you have your say so the Panel Members know how things are for you, what you would like to happen, and how you are feeling.

What happens to the form once I fill it in?

When you fill in your Hearing About Me Form, it is really important to get it to the Reporter as soon as possible so they can send it out in your papers in good time.  Or you can give it to a parent, carer or social worker to send to the Reporter who will be dealing with your case.  You can also fill it out online and email it in to SCRA; just click on the online version here.

You can also bring it with you to your Hearing although it is always best to send it in as soon as possible if you can.

The form will be sent out in your hearing papers to the Panel Members, your Social Worker, and any relevant persons (this could be your parents or carers).

At your Hearing

You will of course get the chance to speak at your Hearing. The Panel Members will want to hear from you about how you are and how you are feeling. They might ask you about home and school as well. Remember, it’s your Hearing – it’s all about you!
