Independent reviewing officers

You may come across IROs – they are our Independent Reviewing Officers. They are the people who chair reviews for children living in children’s homes or foster care (sometimes called ‘looked after’ or ‘in care’). 
Their role is to decide what happens for a child’s future.  The ‘young people’s guide to the independent reviewing officers’ handbook’ has been developed by the government to help young people understand: 

  • What should happen at the reviews, 
  • How certain decisions should be made, and
  • What IROs do 

You can read the guide here.  

“Good engagement skills I thought – empathy, non-judgemental and sensitive. Good work.”
