West Berkshire Council

Independent Reviewing Officers (IROs)

Every child that is looked after by West Berkshire Council is appointed an IRO. An IRO will chair a child's Looked After Child Review to make sure their care plan meets their needs and is being progressed within agreed timescales. They will make sure reviews are conducted in line with policies and procedures, the child's views are listened to and their best interests are taken into account.

IROs can also challenge the council when there have been decisions or actions taken that may not be in the best interests of a child, to ensure that the best outcome is achieved.

MOMO is the app we use to communicate with our children and young people, in preparation for their reviews, meetings and in general around sharing news, compliments or complaints. Find out more about MOMO.
