I welcome the priorities laid out in NIROMP’s strategic vision for the forthcoming years. The focus on empowering children’s voices and placing them at the heart of care-planning is an aspiration I have long shared.

Anne Longfield, Children’s Commissioner for England

It’s good to raise our profile as IROs, it’s good to set the bar high and expect the best for the children we work for. This is a good framework to use when we self-reflect and self-inspect our own provisions and team performance. Having a clear vision and clear expectations should leave no excuses for ineffective practice. Thank you and well done.

Otilia Broadhurst, Independent Reviewing Officer
