Our member forums have been developed to meet the different needs of the children’s workforce while also providing the opportunity to bring members together with the ambition of influencing policy and practice.
Voices: The Members’ Forum
Voices brings together the diverse knowledge, skills and experience of our members to seek solutions for the most pressing issues affecting children in Scotland today.
Combined with participation from children and young people, and outputs from our Children’s Sector Strategic and Policy Forum, it is a powerful collection of voices calling on decision-makers to improve children’s lives.
The Forum holds four events per year, complemented by opportunities for members to feed in their views and ideas remotely.
Every member of Children in Scotland is automatically a member of the Forum and we notify all our members about upcoming events.
Children's Sector Strategic Forum
This group meets at least four times per year and takes a pro-active and evidence-based approach to improving children’s lives at a national level.
Membership is made up of Children in Scotland members who hold senior positions within the children’s sector. There are also up to five places per meeting for individuals in membership with specific expertise relevant to the topic under discussion.
At the Forum, members pool their knowledge and expertise to come together and help identify children sector-wide solutions.
Members can access the minutes and briefings from the Children's Sector Strategic and Policy Forum here.
