Lay Members

HSCB has two Lay Members who attend the Main Board and subgroups.

Lay members operate as full members of HSCB, participating as appropriate on the Board itself and on relevant subgroups. Lay members help to make links between the board and community groups, support stronger public engagement in local child safety issues and improve public understanding of the board’s child protection work.
