Case Reviews

A Case Review is undertaken when abuse or neglect of a child is known or suspected; and either the child has died; or the child has been seriously harmed and there is cause for concern as to the way organisations worked together. The purpose of a Case Review is for agencies and individuals to learn lessons that improve the way in which they work, both individually and collectively, to safeguard and promote the welfare of children.

The CHSCP has a sub-group which oversees and quality assures all local Case Reviews and provides advice on whether the criteria for conducting a review has been met. Any professional or agency may refer a case to the CHSCP to consider whether the criteria is met for a Case Review.  The Independent Chair makes the decision of whether to initiate a Case Review.

After the completion of a Case Review, there is an expectation that final report is published in full. The report will include information on the review process, key issues arising from the case and recommendations / key issues for the CHSCP to consider. Additional information and guidance in relation to Case Reviews can be found in the statutory guidance Working Together 2018.

In addition to Case Reviews, the CHSCP also undertakes Multi-Agency Case Reviews. These reviews do not meet the Case Review criteria, but are considered to offer good opportunities to identify relevant learning and ways in which multi-agency practice to safeguard children and young people can be improved locally.
