Glasgow Panel Members honoured
One of the biggest recognition events in the calendar took place at Glasgow's City Chambers on 16 November, with a large number of volunteers, staff and Board members in attendance.
35 years' service
The Civic Reception celebrated significant milestones reached by volunteers in their service to the children and young people of Glasgow. Robert McLean received the standout award, for 35 years’ service as a Glasgow Panel Member.
Fiona Dyer, Director of the Children and Young People’s Centre for Justice, was the keynote speaker, and discussed how the forthcoming Care and Justice Bill is expected to affect the Children’s Hearings System and the role of Panel Members.
The event was generously hosted by Glasgow City Council, and Bailie Patricia Ferguson offered the council’s thanks to those receiving awards.
