Urgent call for evidence: views, experiences and perceptions of children in care and care leavers (NCB/ Children’s Commissioner)

This call is part of work led by the National Children’s Bureau and requested by the Children’s Commissioner to:

  • Gather information on mechanisms used to seek the views, experiences and perceptions of children in care and care leavers.
  • Identify related sources of evidence produced since April 2015 that relate to the views, experiences and perceptions of children in care and care leavers.

The aim is to understand the current evidence base on views, experiences and perceptions of children in or leaving care. This will involve exploring methods used to engage with children, as well as the products of such engagement. Analysis will focus on whether it is feasible to describe a national picture by drawing on individual exercises from across England. This will inform the Children’s Commissioner of whether there is sufficient evidence to inform a future “State of the Nation” report on children in care and care leavers.

We therefore ask that IRO Managers respond to this important call for evidence with information on outputs published or unpublished, carried out since April 2015 related to:

  • Activities you undertake, or have undertaken to gather the views, experiences and perceptions of children in or leaving care.
  • Resulting published or unpublished outputs from these activities.

Attached is a letter from the Children’s Commissioner explaining the project, and a frequently asked question sheet.

NIROMP is also encouraging you to please share this call with colleagues or stakeholders engaging with looked after children and care leavers.

The deadline for the call for evidence is 20 March 2017.

Thank you for your help and support,

Sharon Martin

Chair, National IRO Managers Partnership
