Taking Part

We want to make sure you are clear on how everything works in the National Confidential Forum. This will help to inform your decision to participate.

You can take part if you spent time as a child in an institution providing a care or health service in Scotland. You can check if you are eligible here.

If you want to take part in the Forum, you must first apply. 

You can do this by completing our form. You can either print it off or email it to us.  You can also call us and we can complete your application over the phone. Our support staff can answer any questions you have about your application, what happens next and how we can help you take part in a way that best suits you. 

Being involved in the Forum does not stop you from telling the police what happened, claiming Criminal Injuries Compensation or seeking legal advice.
