A study of recommendations arising from serious case reviews 2009-2010

Study that presents a critical, thematic analysis of recommendations from 33 of the serious case reviews (cases of child death or serious injury through abuse or neglect) completed in 2009-2010.

The central aim of the study was to consider what part recommendations can play in aiding 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 children" (HM Government 2010:246).
