Doncaster Safeguarding Children Partnership Sub-Groups

Our work as a partnership is supported through the following sub groups: 

Learning and Quality Improvement Group

Learning across the partnership, whether that learning arises from case review activity, audit, scrutiny of performance data, practitioner or service user feedback, or any other source. 

Case Review Group

This group provides for the decision-making and commissioning of local child safeguarding practice reviews (CSPRs), previously referred to as Serious Case Reviews. These are required when a child has died or been seriously harmed and abuse or neglect of that child is known or suspected. The purpose of a CSPR is to learn lesson and identify improvements to be made to safeguard and promote the welfare of children, rather than apportioning blame. Further details is given in Working Together 2018 chapter 4. 

Details of serious case reviews or child safeguarding practice reviews undertaken by Doncaster are published on this page.

Neglect Subgroup

The role and purpose of this group is to deliver the outcomes and priorities in relation to child neglect set out in the Neglect Strategy and against the ‘Stay Safe’ Theme in the Children and Young People’s Plan. To discharge any statutory duties required by the group and to champion the voice of children and young people in relation to neglect.
