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.
