Single Unified Safeguarding Review (SUSR) - 7 minute briefing

The Welsh Government is looking to bring Child Practice Reviews, Adult Practice Reviews and Domestic Homicide Reviews all under the new Single Unified Safeguarding Review process. They will be joined by the Mental Health Homicide Reviews, the Offensive Weapons Homicide Reviews (due to be trialled in 2022) and any other reviews that may be introduced through legislation by the Welsh Government and UK Government.

The Programme is already in progress with a central repository for the secure and safe storage and analysis being created by Cardiff University under the direction of the Dyfed Powys Police and Crime Commissioners Office. New guidance to deliver reviews under a single system whilst delivering against devolved and non-devolved legislation is being prepared. A new SUSR Coordination Hub will provide secretariat, hold a list of approved chairs, and liaise with regional partnership boards on progress against recommendations and actions. There will also be the opportunity to identify themes and develop and deliver appropriate training and learning to improve the short term and long term outcomes as a result of the reviews.
