KEY INFORMATION Safeguarding Adults Reviews, Domestic Homicide Reviews & Serious Case Reviews

STATUS - Active


Local Authorities have a Statutory Responsibility under the 2014 Care Act for Safeguarding Adult Reviews and under Section 9 of the Domestic Violence, Crime and Victims Act (2004) for Domestic Homicide Reviews. 
 
Safeguarding Adult Reviews
A Safeguarding Adult Review is a review for all partner agencies to identify the lessons that can be learned from particularly complex or serious safeguarding adults’ cases, where an adult in vulnerable circumstances has died or been seriously injured and abuse or neglect has been suspected. 
 
Domestic Homicide Reviews
A Domestic Homicide Review (DHR) is a review of the circumstances in which the death of a person aged 16 or over has, or appears to have, resulted from violence, abuse or neglect by a person to whom they were related or with whom they were or had been in an intimate personal relationship, or a member of the same household as themselves, held with a view to identifying the lessons to be learnt from the death.
 
Overall responsibility for establishing a DHR rests with the local Community Safety Partnership as they are ideally placed to initiate a DHR and review panel due to their multi-agency design and locations across England and Wales
 
Local Child Safeguarding Practice Reviews
A Local Child Safeguarding Practice Reviews (LCSPR) is a review when a child is seriously harmed or dies as a result of abuse or neglect. The review identifies how local professionals and organisations can improve the way they work together.
  
Independent reviewers should:

  • Have the relevant knowledge and skills for the task
  • Be independent of the services and agencies involved
  • Be able to work within timescales/meet deadlines
