LSCP practice and serious case reviews

The purpose of a Local Child Safeguarding Practice Review is to:

  • Establish whether there are lessons to be learned from the case about the way in which local professionals and agencies work together to safeguard and promote the welfare of children.
  • Identify clearly what those lessons are, how they will be acted on, and what is expected
  • As a consequence, improve inter-agency working and better safeguard and promote the welfare of children.

We will publish Serious Case Reviews that have been completed by the previous LSCP for Hammersmith & Fulham, Kensington and Chelsea or Westminster and for the new LSCP for Hammersmith & Fulham.
