Survey of care experienced people, carried out before Josh MacAlister’s appointment to lead review, also finds concerns that review will be tokenistic, secretive and driven by saving money

The survey, carried out before Frontline chief executive Josh MacAlister’s appointment to lead the review last week, also found concerns that the views of people with direct experience of the system would be “overlooked or marginalised”, or that engagement would turn out to be “tokenistic”.
