Learning From Case Reviews

Type:Briefing Session
Duration:2 Hours

Baby Liam

This short briefing will summarise what a local learning review has shown about the child protection system in Brighton & Hove.

Baby Liam experienced head injuries, when seven weeks old, whilst in the care of his father. Liam’s father had previously been ‘looked after’ by another local authority and was a care-leaver. He was known to have abused alcohol and drugs and was considered to have a volatile temper and had a criminal history of petty theft with some violence to peers.

The session will provide statutory safeguarding partners with the key learning points and allow time for some practice reflection.

The objectives for the briefing:

  • To inform partner agencies of the key learning points made by the review team
  • To allow agencies to review their own particular practice
  • To consider how agencies can implement any changes of practice


It is important if Brighton & Hove is to become a safer place for children to live for everyone to embrace the learning from the review and take the necessary steps to help put right the issues identified.

Safeguarding is everyone’s responsibility and everybody can contribute to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children.

Target Audience:

For staff working with children, young people and families in Brighton & Hove in statutory organisations.
