This briefing discusses the main practice messages from two recent SCRs which highlight rather different issues. One, in particular, raises significant points about the fortunately, relatively rare occurrences where abuse is perpetrated by foster parents. The briefing also provides a short summary of the main conclusions in the latest review of SCR processes in England. [02-Feb-2017]
