Family Rights Group is facilitating a sector-led Care Crisis Review which:
- is examining the reasons for the record number of care order applications and high numbers of children in care;
- aims to identify specific changes that can safely reduce the number of care cases coming before the family court and avert the need for children to come into or remain in care.
NIROMP members are very keen to support this important review. The review team are seeking of views of parents, kinship carers, social workers including IROs, legal professionals, academics, elected members, managers, judges and others who work with families.
Two online surveys have been launched today as part of the Care Crisis Review call for evidence:
We would be very grateful if you could complete the survey that is relevant to you, and forward the link to it to anyone you think might be interested in filling it in. The deadline for completion is Sunday 11 February 2018 (at midnight).
The review team are undertaking a separate consultation with children and young people.
Thank you for your help.
