Learning Review – Baby Alex

Baby AlexThis Learning Review looks at the circumstances surrounding the injury to a five-month-old child while in the care of his parents. Prior to his injuries there were no safeguarding concerns about Alex or his sibling.  They were not known to children’s social care (CSC) or the police. The family was in receipt of enhanced health visiting support, initially due to financial issues and Father’s insecure immigration status.

We would encourage you to take the time to read the professionals briefing that has been collated from the full report. In particular, you should look at the recommendations and consider the questions that this may pose for you as an individual, but also what these findings might mean for your particular agency setting.

Please see the Baby Alex Briefing and take the time to share with your colleagues and consider the outcomes at a team meeting or group supervision.
