Serious Case Reviews

Serious case reviews are instigated by the local Safeguarding Children Board if a child or children die, or are seriously harmed at the hands of another person. The purpose is to find out exactly what happened, what went wrong, were mistakes made, what can learn from this, and what can we do prevent something like this from happening again in the future?
