One of the most important duties for Government is to ensure the safety and wellbeing of our children and young people. When a child has died or been abused we must do everything we can to know why it happened and to learn the lessons from those cases.
This year the Government legislated for the creation of a new national Child Safeguarding Practice Review Panel.
The Panel will have the power to commission and supervise national reviews of child safeguarding cases which they believe could result in national learning. Improvements the Panel identify from reviews will give those who work with children the knowledge of how to improve their working practices, and how to work together more effectively.
The Panel will be independent of Government, and command a high profile across the sector and in the media.
In order to establish the most effective panel possible we welcome candidates from a wide range of backgrounds and experiences. We are seeking to recruit individuals who have worked to improve the life chances of children, as well as those who are able to draw on experience from outside the social care sector that could prove invaluable to making decisions that improve the lives of children.
