Part of Learning Together
The Social Care Institute for Excellence (SCIE) worked in collaboration with the London Safeguarding Children Board (LSCB) to pilot the SCIE Learning Together model for case reviews in seven London Local Safeguarding Children Boards (LSCBs). This report presents on some of the interim findings from the (LSCBs) participating in the pilots of the SCIE Learning Together model.
