Reviews often find a combination of good service provision and good practice, alongside lessons to be learned about how these can be improved to help ensure that such events do not happen again.

Learning from Local SCRs and CSPRs

DSPP has a duty to undertake Local Child Safeguarding Practice Reviews (CSPR) and Case Reviews according to the ‘Working Together 2018’ guidance when indicated from the National Review Panel, as well as to ensure that learning from these reviews is disseminated widely and embedded in practice.

Learning from Local SARs

The prime purpose of a Safeguarding Adult Review (SAR) is for agencies and individuals to learn lessons to improve the way in which they work both individually and collectively to safeguard and promote the welfare of adults with care and support needs.

When available, learning from SAR's will be published here.

For full reports relating to SAR's visit the SAR page
