Safeguarding practice reviews

Last updated on 07 April 2021

A Child Safeguarding Practice Review (previously known as a Serious Case Review (SCR)) is undertaken when a child dies or the child has been seriously harmed and there is cause for concern as to the way organisations worked together.

Safeguarding partners are responsible for overseeing the review of serious child safeguarding cases which, in their view, raise issues of importance in relation to their area. The purpose of reviews of serious child safeguarding cases is to identify improvements to be made to safeguard and promote the welfare of children.
