Parents who record child protection meetings: what social workers need to know

A group of lawyers has produced guidance after identifying a number of councils not fully understanding the law around recording child protection meetings.

The National IRO Managers Partnership has notified the Department for Education of the need for updates to the IRO Handbook. We hope it will be a priority for 2016.

Our mission is to help bring about improvements in practice and policy. Holding children at the centre of what we do through our work with and for them, we aim to lead and promote excellent care and services. The partnership consists of an elected Chair and elected Regional Leads who represent their regions at a national level (two from each of the nine regions within England).
