The Derbyshire Safeguarding Childrens Board is a statutory body, established in accordance with the Children Act 2004 and Working Together to Safeguard Children guidance 2015.

As a professional or volunteer working with or for children you're in a good position to notice if a child is showing signs of abuse or neglect. Or to suspect whether they have been a victim of bullying or have seen harmful content on the internet.

Derbyshire Safeguarding Childrens Board has advice and guidance, with links to other useful websites, to help you understand what action you can take to protect a child.

The Safeguarding Childrens Board conduct serious case reviews (SCRs) when a child or young person dies or is seriously injured, where abuse or neglect are known or suspected to be factors in the death, they work with partner agencies to review each case individually. 

An SCR can also be carried out if a child has been seriously harmed and there is concern about how our partner agencies have worked together to protect the child. 

They are carried out so that improvements can be identified and action taken so that agencies work with each other more effectively to keep children, young people and their families safe.

Serious incident learning reviews (SILRs) take place when a serious case review is not needed but there are still lessons to be learned for professionals who work with children and families.

The aim of serious case reviews and serious incident learning reviews is to prevent similar deaths or incidents of serious harm from happening again in future.
