It's your life! It's your review

There are many ways of getting your views and your voice heard 

  • By completing a consultation booklet online or a paper copy
  • By writing a letter to your Social Worker
  • Sending an email to your Independent Reviewing Officer
  • Meeting an advocate, who can attend the review meeting to share your views
  • Attending your meeting and presenting your views

Your Review (looked after child review)

We want you to advise us on:

  • Who you would like to attend your review
  • Decide where and what time you would like the review
  • If you would like to chair your review or part of it
  • What you want to discuss at your review (your agenda)
  • How we can help you achieve your goals.


An advocate is someone separate from your social worker to help support you at the meeting and put forward your views. Your social worker can arrange an advocate for you - just ask.

Your rights

Your Independent Review Officer will inform you  about what you need to know about your rights:

  • Your right to seek legal advice
  • Your right to have an advocate
  • Your right to make a complaint
