St. Helens Reviews - Learning and Development Group

The Learning and Development Group and Case Review Groups are sub groups of the St Helens Safeguarding Children Partnership (SCP). A function of these groups is to highlight case reviews and ensure that learning is identified in relation to partnership working. These case reviews will be those that do not meet with the Serious Incident criteria and are considered to be lower level cases. Any referral received will be considered by the Case Review Group and forwarded to the Learning and Development Group to action if appropriate. The L and D group will then decide the best method of extracting and disseminating any identified learning.

 Methods may include  learning circles, a desk top reviews, reflective discussions or focus groups with the intention of:

  1. Identifying and extracting any learning in relation to multi-agency practice which has resulted in good outcomes for children and families.
  2. Identifying and extracting any learning where there are areas for improvements in practice.
  3. Supporting future practice development.  

Whilst providing services to individual children and families, professionals within the partnership are always encouraged to reflect together on practice both from a single agency and a multi-agency perspective. This supports professional ownership of ongoing case reviews, however where this can’t be facilitated, practitioners can make a referral to the Case Review sub group using the relevant referral form below:
