  1. Hello,

    At our last team meeting I was asked to enquire with yourselves whether NIROMP provides Legal Advice in respect of children we are working with, to IRO’s who are members of the organization.

    I wonder whether you could provide any information? I have searched on the website but couldn’t find anything, which suggests that NIROMP doesn’t, but I wanted to ask just in case.

    Much appreciated,

    Independent Conference Chair
