Case Reviews

Serious Case Reviews (SCRs), are undertaken in some instances where a child has suffered harm in order to see what lessons can be learnt about how local professionals and organisations worked together and to make recommendations so that the welfare of children is better protected in future.

If an SCR is not required because the criteria are not met, SSCB may choose to commission an alternative form of case review, such as a Partnership Review. These reviews are not published but the learning from them is disseminated to partner agencies.
