Stockport Safeguarding Children Board commissioned a Serious Case Review following the tragic death of Jaiden in Stockport. The Safeguarding Children Board wish to extend heartfelt sympathies to the family of Jaiden for their devastating loss.
Jaiden was a looked after child and was making good use of the support offered and was making positive life changes. The Review found that it could not have been predicted that Jaiden’s life would end as it did, and therefore it could not have been prevented by any professionals involved.
The Serious Case Review found that there was evidence of effective inter-agency work, but also areas which could be improved upon and these areas will form the basis for further action by the Local Authority and its partner agencies.
The findings and recommendations from the Review have been endorsed by Stockport Safeguarding Children Board; agencies have learnt from this review and have been making changes to improve outcomes for children.
The outcome of this review will be subject to further close scrutiny in the coming months by Stockport Safeguarding Children Board and its Independent Chair.
