Sometimes a child suffers a serious injury or death as a result of child abuse or neglect. Understanding not only what happened but also why things happened as they did can help to improve our response in the future.

Working Together to Safeguard Children – 2018

Under Working Together 2018, safeguarding partners are required to promptly undertake a rapid review on all notified serious incidents. Rapid reviews should assemble the facts of the case as quickly as possible in order to establish whether there is any immediate action needed to ensure a child safety and the potential for practice learning. The rapid review should conclude with a decision about whether or not a local child safeguarding practice review should be commissioned using the criteria set out in Working Together 2018.
