This review, commissioned by the government, is the first of an ongoing series of national overview studies of Serious Case Reviews. Its aim was simple - to draw out the key findings of a sample of such case reviews, and their implications for policy and practice.
The government made a commitment in the 1998 White Paper 'Modernising Social Services' to put in place new arrangements to commission from all of its Chief Inspectors of services involved with children a joint report on children’s safeguards.
This is the first of those reports and draws on the findings of a wide range of inspection activity undertaken by individual inspectorates. In addition, a joint inspection was undertaken to address inter-agency arrangements for safeguarding children.
Evidence-based policy and practice increasingly demands the use of research as a key tool to improve practice. However, little research can be directly applied to practice, many practitioners aren't equipped to digest research and appropriate support systems are lacking. What is needed is a better understanding of the relationship between social care research and the work of social care practitioners, including what organisational structures are needed to enable the use of research.
This report provides guidance on the support available to young runaways; analysis of reasons and risks; statistical information; procedures for professionals and examples of good practice.
