Independent Reviewing Officers

We are your Independent Reviewing Officers. Some people call us ‘IROs’ for short.

Every child and young person in care must have an IRO.

IROs will:

  • Make sure your wishes and feelings are heard
  • Chair your review meetings
  • Check you are being cared for properly
  • Follow up decisions from your review

Reasons why you might want to contact us

  • If things agreed at your review have not happened
  • Problems with where you live or seeing family or friends
  • To ask for advice or information
  • Help to make a complaint or to get an advocate

Meet the team

You can ring, text or email us. If you leave a message on our voicemail, we will always call you back as soon as possible. 

Please note we do not work weekends. Please text or leave us a voicemail, and we will get back to you.
