Serious Case Reviews were replaced with Child Practice Reviews in January 2013 under the new legislative guidance: Protecting Children in Wales - Guidance for Arrangements for Multi Agency Child Practice Reviews.
This guidance replaced Chapter 10: Serious Case Reviews in Safeguarding Children: Working Together under the Children Act 2004.
The Child Practice Review guidance was further updated following the Social Services and Well-being (Wales) Act 2014, and is now articulated in part 7 of this Act under Working Together to Safeguard People Volume 2 - Child Practice Reviews.
Child Practice Review reports are published for a period of 12 weeks, and can be requested thereafter.
Following the regionalisation of Local Safeguarding Children Boards in Wales during 2014, as per the Social Services and Well-being (Wales) Act 2014, Child Practice Reviews are now completed under the Mid and West Wales Safeguarding Board (CYSUR). The completed Child Practice Review report is published on the CYSUR website.
Previously published Pembrokeshire Serious Case Reviews can also be made available on request to the Mid and West Wales Safeguarding Board (CYSUR).
