Learning from Individual Cases

The Learning From Individual Cases Group (LFICG) will learn from experience and improve services by effectively reviewing and learning from cases and use this information to improve practice, systems and our arrangements through –

  • identifying issues of policy, training or quality that should be addressed by relevant committees/groups
  • ensuring that the learning from reviews is disseminated to managers and practitioners via the safeguarding champions, briefings and ongoing staff training and development
  • receiving regular reports from the Child Death Overview Panel (CDOP) and Local Authority Designated Officer (LADO) which concern local strategy, practice or procedures
  • monitoring action plans in order to ensure implementation of the learning and improvements identified

Local Learning Reviews

The Learning from Individual Cases subgroup oversees the child safeguarding practice reviews and local learning reviews across Hull. Terms of Reference for this subgroup have recently been updated, including a clear referral pathway for agencies who identify a child where a review would be helpful. This includes the process in relation to `Line of Sight Meetings’ which have recently been introduced through HSCP for local learning reviews, including thematic reviews.  Key learning is identified through consideration of agency chronologies and reflective discussion with practitioners.  Panel meetings are then held to agree specific actions to improve future outcomes for children and young people.  Actions identified from learning reviews are tracked through the Learning from Individual Cases subgroup to ensure continual progress in improving safeguarding practice and support across the partnership.

The Line of sight Process and Referral Form are available below:
