Care Planning & the Role of the IRO Report

The Centre for Research on the Child and Family (CRCF) at the University of East Anglia has undertaken research into current practice in care planning and the role of the IRO.


The aims of the project were to learn from the histories of the children and views of practitioners, parents and children, to identify key messages for policy and practice. We are now working with government and non-government agencies to share our findings and develop practice models for rigorous but flexible child focus, and clarity about professional roles and boundaries.
