DfE consults on the changing use of special guardianship orders

A reminder that this consultation closes 18th September. The National IRO Manager Partnership is submitting a response. Thoughts and comments should therefore be sent to your regional lead by 14th September. Regional lead details can be found in this sites ‘Events & Regions’ page.

National IRO Managers Partnership

The Department for Education (DfE) is consulting on the changing use of special guardianship orders (SGOs) following concern that the assessment process for SGOs may not be sufficiently robust. The DfE wants to work with stakeholders through consultation and review to understand the reasons behind the changes. It will use the review to help inform any potential changes to the law and guidance.

The consultation closes at 5pm on 18 September 2015 and the National IRO Manager Partnership is in the process of consulting its members as part of a coordinated national response.

Expert Advisory Group
The review will be overseen by an Expert Advisory Group representing practitioners, local authorities, academics, representative organisations such as the National IRO Manager Partnership and a judicial observer.
