The Cwm Taf Safeguarding Children Board commission reviews whenever the circumstances of any case meets the criteria as set out in Welsh Government guidance: 'Protecting Children in Wales - Guidance for Arrangements for Multi-Agency Child Practice Reviews'.
A Child Practice Review is held if abuse or neglect of a child is known or suspected and the child has died; or sustained potentially life threatening injury; or sustained serious and permanent impairment of health or development. Child Practice Reviews identify lessons that can be learned by professionals associated with the cases under review so that we can implement recommendations and so continue to improve the effectiveness of our multi-agency arrangements in the Cwm Taf area to safeguard our children and young people.
An information leaflet has been produced for parents, families and carers to help explain why a Child Practice Review is carried out.
Professionals who wish to refer a case for consideration of a Child Practice Review are asked to complete the APR/CPR Practice Referral Form and return to the Safeguarding Business Unit.
