The LSCB Annual Report for 2012/13 can be found here
In December 2012 the Chair of Sutton LSCB made the decision to hold a Serious Case Review (SCR) following the tragic death of a young boy who is referred to as Child B. The review seeks to identify lessons that can be learnt in this case by the professional agencies involved. The anonymised report is now available on this website.
In June we were formally notified that, following an unannounced inspection by Ofsted, Sutton has moved to a judgement of Adequate in safeguarding. This was a great achievement by all those who work in this area and the LSCB is determined to build on this success.
When a child dies from abuse or neglect, the local inter-agency group responsible for child protection conduct a review to identify how local professionals and organisations can improve the way they work together to safeguard children. This is referred to as a Serious Case Review (SCR). At the end of 2012, Sutton concluded an SCR and the reports, which are anonymous, are now available on this site.
The teenage rape prevention campaign advertising will be re-run from 1 December and throughout January 2013. The campaign aims to prevent teenagers from becoming victims and perpetrators of sexual violence and abuse.
As part of the violence against women and girls action plan, the campaign encourages teenagers to re-think their views of rape, sexual assault, violence and abuse, and direct them to places for help and advice.
Building on the success of the campaign against teenage relationship abuse, this campaign targets 13-18 year old boys and girls to specifically focus on rape and sexual assault. The campaign aims to:
- raise awareness of the issue of rape and sexual violence
- improve understanding of what constitutes rape, sexual assault and consent
- empower young people to avoid, challenge and report sexually violent behaviour
The campaign website, This is ABUSE (Opens in a new window), gives teenagers the change to discuss the issues with their peers and get access to third party support and advice.
