Bradwell, J.; Crawfor, D.; Crawford, J.; Dent, L.; Finlinson, K.; Gibson, R.; Porter, E. and Kellett, M. (2011). How looked after children are involved in their review process. Child Indicators Research, 4(2) pp. 221–229.




This paper describes research by a group of young people into the extent to which they are meaningfully involved in their care review processes. They set out to determine who controls the review process, whether young people's views are listened to in the review process and how young people can actively contribute. A mixture of interviews and questionnaires were used to generate data. The research resulted in the young people making a series of recommendtations to improve care review practice.
