Case Reviews

"Professionals and organisations protecting children need to reflect on the quality of their services and learn from their own practice and that of others. Good practice should be shared so that there is a growing understanding of what works well. Conversely, when things go wrong there needs to be a rigorous, objective analysis of what happened and why, so that important lessons can be learnt and services improved to reduce the risk of future harm to children. 

The different types of review include:

  • Serious Case Review (SCR) (see page 75) for every case where abuse or neglect is known or suspected and either:
    • a child dies; or 
    • a child is seriously harmed and there are concerns about how organisations or professionals worked together to safeguard the child;
  • child death review (see chapter 5): a review of all child deaths;
  • review of a child protection incident which falls below the threshold for an SCR; and
  • review or audit of practice in one or more agencies.

(Working Together, 2015).
