Child safeguarding practice reviews (CSPRs)

Warrington Safeguarding Partnership (WSP) brings together local agencies to co-operate, to safeguard and promote the welfare of children. One of their responsibilities is to review cases where a child has died or been harmed.

What is a Child Safeguarding Practice Review?

Child Safeguarding Practice Reviews are carried out both locally and at a national level. The purpose of these reviews is to identify improvements to be made to safeguard and promote the welfare of children.

It is not an enquiry about you, your family, or about the care you have given to your child.

The review concentrates on the work of the professionals and agencies who have been involved with you and your family. Other organisations and agencies may be asked to give information or contribute to the review.

How might I ask to be involved?

We acknowledge this is likely to be a very difficult time for you and we want to support you to contribute your feedback into the process.

You will have the opportunity to talk about any involvement that either your child or your family had with individual agencies and organisations.

You can do this in a number of ways, and we can be flexible to support you to be involved.

The lead reviewer may wish to discuss with you this process and your contact with organisations, agencies and professionals involved. This may be a virtual or a face to face meeting and we will arrange this at a date, time and venue that suits you. If you wish, you can have someone with you at the meeting as a support, such as a friend, family member, another professional or your solicitor.
