Learning from Case Reviews: Neglect

Duration:2 hours

Neglect & Emotional Harm is one of the priorities of Brighton & Hove Local Safeguarding Children Board, and we recently completed a multi-agency Learning Review on a long-standing neglect case. This case did not reach the threshold for a Serious Case Review, but the Board felt that it was felt appropriate to look at all agency involvement with this family, as a window onto our systems, and to see what we can learn about how to better manage complex cases of neglect, and improve the outcomes for the child

It is important if Brighton & Hove is to become a safer place for children to live for everyone to embrace the learning from reviews and take the necessary steps to help put right the issues identified. This briefing session will share the learning and key messages from this review, and provide practitioners across the partnership with an opportunity to consider the findings about the effectiveness of local practice.


Target audience

Anyone who works with children, young people, or families in Brighton & Hove
