Original consultation

We would like your views on proposed changes to the independent review mechanism (IRM) for qualifying determinations.

Consultation description

We are consulting on draft regulations that will:

  • remove the entitlement to an independent review
  • ensure qualifying determination reviews can be heard through the fostering provider’s or adoption agency’s complaints procedures
  • ensure that complaints procedures are robust enough to act as an alternative to the existing IRM
