This resource guide summarises SCIE Report 19: Learning together to safeguard children: developing a multi-agency systems approach for case reviews. Children’s safety and welfare are key concerns in all countries, with continual efforts being made to improve child welfare and child protection services. Learning is central to these endeavours so that problems and their solutions can be identified.
However, it has been questioned whether current learning approaches are adequate for the task. In light of this, SCIE presents a ‘systems’ model of organisational learning that can be used across agencies involved in safeguarding and child protection work.
