Job description

Our Client Havering Council is looking for an Independent Reviewing Officer to join their team.

What Are IROs supposed to do for children and young people?

  • They ensure that review meetings take place, that the relevant people are involved and either chair the meeting themselves or support and enable the child/ young person to chair his or her own meeting.
  • They must make sure that the views and wishes of children / young people views are heard and recorded.
  • Ensure that they know the reason why their views and wishes cannot be implemented if that is the case and that they understand any changes in their Care Plan as far as is possible according to their age and understanding.
  • Make sure that the local authority is a good "corporate parent" to all children and young people in care. This means children and young people in care get the same services as other children and young people would and that their "corporate parent" does everything as well for them as a good parent would do for their own child at home.
