Learning from practice reviews

In September 2019, we published a thematic report reviewing the key themes from serious and local case reviews published between April 2018 and March 2019. Key themes identified were:

  • undertaking assessments and the use of historic information
  • inquisitive practice and meaningful engagement
  • engaging with fathers and new adults in the family
  • information sharing and record keeping
  • working with neglectful families and understanding sustained change
  • children’s attendance at appointments
  • multi-Agency Challenge and Escalation
  • working with children where the parents have additional needs
  • vulnerability of small children and babies
