NIROMP’s draft Strategic Priorities is now out for public consultation.
The consultation is open until 28 February 2019.
The NIROMP regional leads approved publication of the Draft Strategic Priorities & Vision 2019-2022 document at a meeting held at the Department for Education on 28th January. The draft plan has been developed following discussions with individuals, organisations and professionals.
NIROMP Chair Sharon Martin said:
“These discussions helped us to understand how people involved with the independent reviewing offer system want our services to look, and what we should be focusing on.
“The feedback gave us a picture of what is going well, what needs to be improved and what we need to concentrate on. It also highlighted that there are many and varied needs in relation to achieving more consistent IRO services across England and we have worked to shape our plan to meet these challenges.
“I would now encourage IROs and children, young people and adults with care experience and indeed all our wider stakeholders to take advantage of this formal consultation period and give us your views on this draft plan – because this document should belong not just to the partnership but to everyone with an interest in children in care and leaving care. We will study the feedback carefully and consider all the views and suggestions that are expressed.”
Why we are seeking your views
Your views will ensure that NIROMP builds on its evidence base about the independent reviewing officer system and the issues and challenges facing it. This will ensure that our plan is focused on the right areas and that we understand where changes are needed.
To submit a response please add your views to the comments box below. Your name and individual details will not be published.
The consultation period runs until Thursday 28 February 2019. The finalised document will be approved by NIROMP’s national leads by 28 March and published in April.
