C/YP in Care Reviews
In our safeguarding system, children and young people who are in care, have reviews take place every few months (after the initial review after the first month), from the time a child is accommodated by the Local Authority. They are chaired by an Independent Chair, the Independent Reviewing Officer (IRO), who will advocate on behalf of the child’s needs. A plan is made at these reviews to address every issue that could arise for a child looked after and to plan for their future. Often the parents are invited and all professionals involved, but this is the child’s meeting. Professionals should ensure they share information, even if they are not invited to the Review.
