Significant Case Reviews - practice briefing
In Scotland, Significant Case Reviews
(SCRs) examine the circumstances and
context of a child being harmed or killed,
to evaluate the nature and quality of
professional contact, if any, with the child,
to identify any system failures which may
impact on other children, and to learn
from the incident, any specific lessons
which will strengthen child protection
systems, locally and nationally.
WithScotland research briefings provide a concise summary of the available research knowledge in which to inform practice. They are aimed at practitioners, managers, policy-makers and researchers.
