The worsening financial situation in children’s services

Stuart Gallimore, ADCS President,  is calling for more funding for children’s services or a “statement of intent” from government that more will be coming …

ADCS president Stuart Gallimore told CYP Now he has been left frustrated by a lack of action by government to address the mounting financial crisis facing children’s social care.

  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,

    Liz
