*Read the full report at source: Croydon Safeguarding Children Board Serious Case Review ‘Claire’” <
This post is intended to draw attention to the learning from a Serious Case Review (SCR) published by Croydon Safeguarding Children Board about a child who for the purpose of the review was named ‘Claire’.
Claire was taken into care and placed with foster carers. She was then sexually abused by her foster carer.
The report was originally published 24 January 2017 via Croydon Safeguarding Children Board.
Croydon Safeguarding Children Board identified that reviewing this case had the potential to shed light on particular areas of practice and raised the following questions:
- How do services work together to assess carers and match children with carers?
- How do multi-agencies work in partnership to support children with complex needs?
- How effective are multi-agency partnerships in protecting children from sexual abuse?
- How does existing partnership working (within and between systems, teams and agencies) improve outcomes for looked after children after?
