Child Death Review Arrangements


Chapter 5 of Working Together to Safeguard Children 2018 (WTSC) published in July 2018, outlined changes to the child death review process. The government produced a more comprehensive Child Death Review Statutory and Operational Guidance in October 2018 and set out key features of what a good Child Death Review (CDR) process should look like and the statutory requirements that must be followed.

In Leeds our CDOP is committed to reviewing every child death in order to identify whether there is any learning to influence better outcomes for children and young people at both local and national level. The CDOP also influence actions that can be taken to reduce the number of child deaths in the future, as well as improving services to families and carers.
