Wales launches consultation on Independent Review Mechanism

The Welsh Assembly Government would like your views on proposed
changes to the independent review mechanism (IRM) for qualifying determinations
in the proposed Adoption and Fostering (Specified Complaints) (Miscellaneous
Amendments and Revocations) (Wales) Regulations 2020.

If approved the draft regulations will:

·         Remove the entitlement to an independent review

·         Ensure qualifying determination reviews can be heard through the fostering provider’s or adoption agency’s complaints procedures

·         Ensure that complaints procedures are robust enough to act as an alternative to the existing IRM
