What is the Research about?

We want to find out about how decisions are made for children and young people in care, and whether they feel they have a say. We are also looking at the job ‘Independent Reviewing Officers' do in making and checking plans for children. We are trying to find out what is really helpful for children and young people in care.

Why is the research happening?

We are interested in making sure children and young people's voices are heard by government and others who make decisions affecting them. We will write about what we find out and give them a report.

If you are a child or young person in care and we have contacted you about taking part in this study, view our answers to questions you may have.
