The review will listen to and engage with a wide range of voices. This page sets out some early ways you can get involved in the review and more details will be added soon.
Call for Advice: shape the reviewer’s plans for the review
Call for Evidence: help us understand the existing evidence
The review will be starting with an evidence review – considering what we already know about how well the current system provides love, stability and safety.
To support this, the review is launching an early Call for Evidence. This Call for Evidence is aimed primarily at the research community and those with robust evidence the review should consider. This asks for specific research and analysis relevant to the big question of the review. There will be further opportunities to submit evidence as more specific questions emerge, as well as other ways to engage and provide input to the review. The Call for Evidence will supplement the Call for Advice – every document submitted through the Call for Advice is being considered as part of the evidence review.
Other opportunities to get involved
There will be many other ways to get involved with the review and an opportunity for everyone who wants to share their views to do so. The review will engage both with those who have lived experience of children’s social care and the wide range of people who work to support children.
Our engagement plans and activities for those with lived experience will be guided by the Experts by Experience Board and we will publish those plans on this website during the next few weeks.
We will also shortly be setting out a structured plan for engagement for all those who currently work to support children. To do this we will be reliant on the many membership bodies and other forums that can help facilitate conversations – if you can help us convene one of these conversations then please get in touch with the review mailbox.
