What is a Children’s Hearing? SCRA launches new film for parents & carers with learning disabilities

The Scottish Children’s Reporter Administration (SCRA) has launched a new film for parents and carers with learning disabilities who have a child or children going through the Hearings System.

The film features two actors with learning disabilities from the Lung Ha Theatre Company in Edinburgh and a young actor from the Scottish Youth Theatre.

The film covers getting a letter from the Reporter, to going to a Children’s Hearing, to getting help and advice. There is also versions of the film in British Sign Language and with subtitles.

Jennifer Orren, SCRA’s Participation Officer said:

We are committed to improving our information materials for children, young people, parents and carers who are referred to the Reporter or are coming to a Children’s Hearing.

Our new film is another great addition to our suite of information materials. It provides information about the system in hopefully an easy to understand way.

You can watch the film below, or visit SCRA’s website, which also has suite of easy read guides available for parents/carers with learning difficulties.
