Serious Case Reviews

Learning and Improvement Framework

LSCBs must continue to commission Serious Case Reviews (SCR’s) until the point at which the new safeguarding partner arrangements begin to operate in a local area. LSCBs should also continue to use the SCR criteria set out in Working Together 2015.

Reports are published on the RBSCP website for a period of 12 months.

National repository of published case reviews:

Serious Case Reviews provide valuable lessons about how organisations are working together to safeguard and promote the welfare of children.

The national repository of published case reviews is a collaboration between the Association of Independent LSCB Chairs and the NSPCC.

All case reviews are held  in a central location, so the learning contained within them is easier to access. Reports can be retrieved by theme and summaries of key learning are also available.

The NSPCC also publish thematic briefings to highlight learning from Serious Case Reviews. You can find the briefings by clicking here
