Child's Journey and Voice

In order to provide high quality services we must evaluate the effectiveness of different aspects of the child's journey into help and services, the quality of the decisions made by individual agencies and the quality of multi-agency processes. To enable us to do this we must listen to our children, young people and their families and then act upon what we have heard.

IRO Annual Report 2017: The Independent Reviewing Officers primary focus is to quality assure the care planning and review process for each child and to ensure that his/her current wishes and feelings are given full consideration.

This also requires the IRO to provide a statutory responsibility for the oversight of children's care planning and provide an annual report on the details of the IROs findings and make recommendations to the Local Authority on areas of strength and that of improvements for children.

LSCB Annual Report 2014-15 - Young People's Version: Every year the LSCB is required to produce an annual report.
