Regional Update

The Yorkshire & Humberside region has a well established and organised programme of meetings. They are well attended meetings with IRO Manager representation from all local authorities within our region. Meetings are held four times a year and have allowed the region to maintain an eye to the impact of the changes to IRO services and to local government children’s services.

In May, we hosted a successful Regional IRO Conference in Sheffield which was attended by over 110 IROs and Managers across the region. Please contact your Manager for copies of all related handouts and information.

Our region has an established IRO Practitioners forum, which meets four times a year at various locations around the region.
