Please see the link below to the Care Inspectorate’s recent report about Significant Case Reviews between April 2015 and March 2018.
A significant case review is a multi-agency process initiated by child protection committees. They are intended to establish the facts of, and lessons from, a situation where a child has died or been significantly harmed. Significant case reviews should focus on learning and reflect on day-to-day practices and systems within which those practices operate.
The report examined 25 significant case reviews. It highlighted that some agencies in Scotland did not always recognise or respond adequately or quickly enough in some of the most serious child protection cases.
Please read and cascade the detailed recommendations of learning for the future in the report highlighted above.
