Serious Case Reviews: Publication of Learning Briefs for Child LB and LD

Thursday, January 12, 2017

The learning briefs of the Serious Case Review (SCR) in relation to Child LB and LD have now been published.

Today we publish the learning briefs from two SCRs which have been carried out by Independent Reviewers and Chairs with support from senior representatives of all the key agencies who worked with the families.  

The overall reports are delayed in publication due to ongoing criminal proceedings in both cases.  However, a number of recommendations were made, which the LSCB and individual agencies continue to progress.

Key learning has been identified in both reviews and is shared via learning briefs at the link below.  Some key themes highlighted during the reviews include, but are not limited to:

Child LB:

  • Voice of the child
  • Inter-Agency Working through Early Help
  • Engagement with resistant or uncooperative families
  • Professional curiosity relating to minor injuries
  • Decision making in referrals and escalation processes

Child LD:

  • Hostile, Aggressive and Resistant Parents
  • Historic Sexual Abuse and Inappropriate Sexualised Behaviour
  • Safeguarding Children and Duty of Care to Adults
  • Neglect
