After the meeting, your IRO will write up the recommendations made during the review. They will also write up what was discussed, and this is called your Review Report.
The recommendations will be a list of actions, who should do them and by when and the IRO asks that the actions are completed before your next Review.
You will get a copy of the Review Recommendations and the Review Report. If you do not get a copy let your Carer, your IRO or your Social Worker know so you do.
Your IRO will also make arrangements for your next Review Meeting to be held, such as the time, date and place it is to be held.
If you are not happy with what has been recommended or written, you have the right to make a complaint. You can ask your Social worker, IRO or Carer how to do this. You should have a copy of the Complaints leaflet for young people who are in care but if you do not then ask your Social Worker, Carer or IRO for one.
You are also able to use the services of the Childrens Right Officer. They are sometimes known as the Advocate. Wokingham Children Services have their own Childrens Rights Officer and more information about her can be found in the “Who’s Who” section.
Your IRO must also check that the plans that are agreed for you are carried out. If your IRO thinks that the plans are not being progressed, or you are not getting the help and support you need, they must do something about this.
They can start by talking to your Social Worker and their Team Manager, but they can also seek independent advice from a Solicitor if needed.
If you have any questions about the process, what happens, when things will happen and about being involved in planning for you, then please speak to your Social Worker or your IRO. Otherwise, you can make contact with someone using the “contact us” page on this web site.
