Thank you for visiting the Independent Review of Children’s Social Care’s website. 

Following the publication of the Review in May 2022, the Government has today (2 February 2023) published its strategy, Stable Homes, Built on Love and this can be read here. The plan responds to recommendations made by three independent reviews by Josh MacAlister, the Child Safeguarding Practice Review Panel into the tragic murders of Arthur Labinjo-Hughes and Star Hobson, and the Competition and Markets Authority (CMA).

This website will be closed down. An archived version will be saved with the National Archives. 

Events

Everyone who wants to will get an opportunity to contribute to the Review. 

We will have a number of review-hosted public events (which will be coloured green on the below calendar) starting from July 2021, which anyone can sign up for.

There are also some events run with external organisations (coloured yellow) on the calendar which the Review team will be attending to hear from people with lived experience, or professional experience, of children’s social care.
