The Supreme Court today handed down its judgment in two cases involving the rights of brothers and sisters in Children’s Hearings.

The Court ruled that following adaptations to Children’s Hearings, such as direction to Reporters and guidance for Panel Members, the requirements of Article 8 ECHR were met in relation to siblings and other family members.

Stand Up For Siblings will continue to work with all members in our partnership to ensure that siblings rights and relationships are at the heart of Children’s Hearings and the wider care system.
