Education Committee – Independent Reviewing Officers

Following the recommendation to remove Independent Reviewing Officers (IROs) in the ‘Foster Care in England’ report, I asked the Minister for Children and Families why anyone would want to remove people who act to protect children’s interests in the care process.

This is especially worrying as several organisations such as the Fostering Network, Action for Children, and even the National Children’s Commissioner have criticised the report’s recommendation.
