Serious Case Reviews
When a child dies, including death by suspected suicide, and abuse or neglect is known or suspected to be a factor in the death, the LSCB is required to conduct a Serious Case Review into the involvement of organisations and professionals in the lives of the child and the family.
The purpose of a Serious Case Review is to establish whether there are lessons to be learned from the case about the way in which local professionals and organisations work together to safeguard children, identify what needs to be changed and, as a consequence, improve inter-agency working to better safeguard and promote the welfare of children.
At the end of each Serious Case Review, a full overview report is completed, together with an executive summary.
Executive summaries of Serious Case Reviews conducted by East Sussex LSCB are given below.
