Child Safeguarding Practice Reviews

The purpose of reviews of serious child safeguarding cases, at both local and national level, is to identify improvements to be made to safeguard and promote the welfare of children.

Serious child safeguarding cases are those in which:

  • abuse or neglect of a child is known or suspected, and;
  • the child has died or been seriously harmed.

Reviews seek to prevent or reduce the risk of recurrence of similar incidents. They are not conducted to hold individuals, organisations or agencies to account.

Below are the most recent child safeguarding practice reviews undertaken by Trafford Strategic Safeguarding Board.

Safeguarding Adult Reviews

Trafford Strategic Safeguarding Board must arrange for there to be a review of a case involving an adult in its area with needs for care and support (whether or not the local authority has been meeting any of those needs) if:

  • there is reasonable cause for concern about how TSSB, members of it or other persons with relevant functions worked together to safeguard the adult, and
  • condition 1 or 2 is met.
  • Condition 1 is met if 
  1. the adult has died, and
  2. the SAB knows or suspects that the death resulted from abuse or neglect (whether or not it knew about or suspected the abuse or neglect before the adult died).
  • Condition 2 is met if 
  1. the adult is still alive, and
  2. the SAB knows or suspects that the adult has experienced serious abuse or neglect.
  • An SAB may arrange for there to be a review of any other case involving an adult in its area with needs for care and support (whether or not the local authority has been meeting any of those needs).
