Children and young people’s response to the final report of the Independent Review of Children’s Social Care

08 Sep 22

Following the launch of the Independent Review of Children’s Social Care Report in May 2022, we invited our A National Voice Ambassadors and A National Voice Network (children in care councils, care leaver forums and participations groups) to express their views on the report recommendations and discuss the implications for the future.

We held an online session with A National Voice Network and Ambassadors where we were joined by members of the Independent Care Review Team to answer questions and listen to views about the recommendations. We also held separate sessions with ANV Ambassadors to explore the recommendations. In total we consulted 78 children and young people aged 11-25.

We asked, what children and young people welcome, worry and wonder about the recommendations.

Over 300 children and young people took part and several important to themes
emerged, including: a post code lottery, cliff edges in care, systems that don’t work for children and young people and the importance of positive language.

To find out what they said, take a look at their report.
