Serious case reviews are
undertaken when a child dies or is seriously injured, and abuse or
neglect are known or suspected to be factors in the death.
They are carried out under the auspices of Local Safeguarding Children
Boards so that lessons can be learnt and action taken to improve
outcomes for children and young people. Each review results in the publication of an executive summary report. Since June 2010 this has included the publication of the overview report. Copies of all these reports can be downloaded below.
