My review

Your review is a time when you will be asked whether everything is going well, or if you have problems that we need to sort out for you.

Every 6 months, you will go to a ‘review’ meeting with your carers, social worker and Independent Reviewing Officer (IRO)..

  • Your IRO will talk to you on your own before every review to make sure you’re happy and to check how things are going. They’ll want to know
    about school, hobbies, family and friends. 
  • You can decide who comes to your review – for example, you can involve your mum, dad, teacher or friend. Or an advocate can speak on your behalf. 
  • Some young people even run their own review meetings – ask if you want to do this. It’s a great way to feel even in more charge of your life! 
  • Your views will be listened to before any decisions are taken about your care.
  • You will get a copy of everything that was talked about at the review, and all the decisions that were made.
