Child, Youth and Community Tribunal

**CLOSED – for information only** 

CYCT is recruiting!



The Child, Youth and Community Tribunal are looking for new members.

There’s a drop in session on October 14th at 5.30pm at Briarwood, La Grande Rue, St Martins. The President and current Tribunal members will be available to answer questions and discuss in detail what their role involves.

Having a tribunal panel made up of trained members of the public means that cases involving children and families can be heard in a supportive and non-adversarial environment. We’ve talked to a number of people who have been part of the CYCT and, without exception, they have been hugely positive, finding the work challenging and meaningful.

The minimum time commitment is one morning or afternoon a month so the role can be combined with a job, particularly if you have an understanding employer who values contribution to the community.  For more detail, head to our CYCT page where we analyse the role in detail.

It’s mandatory that each three-person tribunal is made up of a mix of women and men and Ashley Rawles, President of the CYCT, is keen to recruit both. So please do encourage the male members of your family and friends to think about applying too. Younger applicants are also welcome, especially as they may be able relate more closely to the issues young people face.

Further information and application forms can be downloaded from the website, or can be obtained by contacting the Office of the Children’s Convenor on 01481 213290.

Closed: 19th October 2020.
