Systems Review

The Child Protection System Review Group has been set up to focus on three key areas of the formal child protection system:

  • Child Protection Committees
  • Child Protection Registers and case conferences
  • Significant Case Reviews & Initial Case Reviews

An independent Chair, Catherine Dyer, has been appointed to the review and membership includes experts from across the sector.

The review is being supported by The Centre for Excellence for Looked After Children in Scotland (CELCIS). The first stage of the review was carried out in July and August and took the form of scoping interviews with experts in the field in order to shape the review discussions. Meetings of the review group are taking place between August and December this year with the group reporting to Ministers by December.
