Interim Munro report published

The interim, second report of the Munro review - a major review looking into child protection - has been published.

The report, entitled The Child’s Journey, aims to improve child protection and the review has worked with five authorities to improve the system.

Recommendations in the report include strengthening the role of Local Safeguarding Children’s Boards and that the role of Director of Children’s Services continues to be the key place for accountability for child protection.

The final report and recommendations are due in April 2011.
