Case Review Subcommittee

Terms of Reference

The Case Review Subcommittee is responsible for leading on the Brighton & Hove LSCB’s Learning & Improvement Framework as required by Chapter 4 of Working Together to Safeguard Children 2015.

The Case Review Subcommittee will lead on the local Learning & Improvement Framework so that

  • Reviews are conducted regularly, not only on cases which meet statutory criteria, but also on other cases which can provide useful insights into the way organisations are working together to safeguard and protect the welfare of children;
  • Reviews look at what happened in a case, and why, and what action will be taken to learn from the review findings;
  • Action results in lasting improvements to services which safeguard and promote the welfare of children and help protect them from harm; and
  • There is transparency about the issues arising from individual cases and the actions which organisations are taking in response to them, including sharing the final reports of Serious Case Reviews (SCRs) with the public.
