This presentation gives an overview of interim key findings from the transformative funded project, 'Rethinking Child Protection Strategy'. The aim of the project is to evaluate the justification for current intervention strategy in relation to child protection and safeguarding referrals and assessments. The project investigates three important areas, and its final report will analyse the data findings from these areas. The three areas of investigation are (1) Trend data of referrals and outcomes since the Children Act 1989 (2) A qualitative and quantitative analysis of Public Inquiries and Serious Case Reviews; and (3) A review of the use of risk assessments. The trend analysis has yielded important findings which are reported at this interim stage of the research, along with an update on progress on the remaining stages.
