Research in Practice – Learning from Serious Case Reviews

Triennial Analysis of SCRs: Briefing for social workers and family support workers

Research in Practice, working with the research teams at UEA and Warwick University, has launched a new open access series of videos and briefings papers about the learning from Serious Case Reviews.

These excellent resources will support learning in practice for IROs, Conference Chairs, LSCBs, social work and early help, police and criminal justice, health and education practitioners.

More of an introduction to the materials and resources is available via the Serious Case Reviews Home page 

Here’s an extract from the sites Home page:

‘Pathways to harm, pathways to protection (July 2016) analyses 293 Serious Case Reviews (SCRs) relating to incidents which occurred between 1 April 2011-31 March 2014. This is the fifth consecutive analysis of SCRs by this research team; together these reports cover 11 years from 2003-14. This ‘long view’ has allowed the team to build a picture of the nature and circumstances of serious and fatal maltreatment. In 2016-17 there are likely to be fundamental changes to the way in which multi-agency safeguarding is coordinated and SCRs are conducted, informed by the Wood review of LSCBs and Government’s response (May 2016) and the passage of the Children and Social Work Bill. Whatever the structural arrangements in future, the significant body of learning contained in this Triennial Analysis and the previous reports will remain an essential resource for everyone concerned to prevent and protect against the maltreatment of infants, children and young people’.
