Serious Case Reviews

 

One of the tasks that Thurrock Local Safeguarding Children Board have to undertake is the review of serious cases in their area.

Government guidance states that when a child dies, and abuse or neglect is known or suspected to be a factor in the death, or significant harm has taken place to a child or young person and there could be lessons to be learnt about the ways agencies worked together to safeguard and promote the welfare of children, a serious case review should be considered.

 If it is determined to proceed with a serious case review the LSCB will agree a review methodology and look to identify clearly what those lessons are, how they will be acted upon, and what is expected to change as a result, and as a consequence, improve inter-agency working and better safeguard and promote the welfare of children.

When we conduct a serious case review we will publish the findings in a report and provide a copy on this website.
