Independent Reviewing Officer

Together for Children IRO team

As a team, all the staff working in the Children’s Independent Review Team (CIRT), are passionate about the individual needs of the children and young people that we work with.

We strive to be organised and thorough in our approach to working with children and young people. We try our best to be there for you and do all we can to make things better for you.

We endeavour to be good listeners and to make sure your voice is heard. We need to be focussed and direct in our meetings yet we will engage parents and children to ensure they understand what is happening.

We will always consider your point of view and how a child protection plan, or being in care affects you, in both good and not so good ways.

As a team we are committed to all the children and young people that we work with and would like you to know that, “we will listen to you and together we will try and sort things out”.
