The Children’s Hearings Improvement Partnership (CHIP), of which CYCJ is a partner, has published a statement of vision and values which reflects the enduring ethos of the Children’s Hearings System.
CHIP brings together a range of agencies and key interests who have responsibility for the successful delivery of Scotland’s Hearings System. One of the priority activities for CHIP in 2015/16 was the creation of the vision and values, ensuring to include the following key components:
- Understanding of each other’s roles and responsibilities in the Hearing system
- Respect for the roles and responsibilities of others – demonstrated through constructive, positive behaviours, consistent with the ethos of the Hearing System
- A commitment to the principle of paramount concern of ‘best interests’ of the child/young person in all elements of our contributions, actions and decision making
The vision and values will be reviewed in the course of the next nine months to assess whether they are having the right kind of impact and what further development and refinement is required.
