Serious Case Review draws attention to the requirement for culturally competent and anti- oppressive practice in safeguarding children

“The review points to a particular need to address culturally competent and anti-oppressive practice linked to the approach taken to assessment, analysis, planning, intervention and review. A degree of confusion, compounded by the widespread tendency to view risk taking adolescent behaviour primarily through the lens of offending and harmful peer groups through the lens of gangs, had distorted understanding and responses.”

A recently published Serious Case Review investigation by Newham local safeguarding children board identifies a number of opportunities to learn from the tragic death of Chris, a 14 year old victim of exploitation.

The review points to a particular need to address culturally competent and anti-oppressive practice linked to the approach taken to assessment, analysis, planning, intervention and review. A degree of confusion, compounded by the widespread tendency to view risk taking adolescent behaviour primarily through the lens of offending and harmful peer groups through the lens of gangs, had distorted understanding and responses.

Sincere condolences to Chris’s family.

Important learning – the review made 14 recommendations.
