This is the third national review commissioned by the Child Safeguarding Practice Review Panel. It focusses on the circumstances of babies under 1 years old who have been harmed or killed by their father or other males in a caring role.
The specific questions this review seeks to answer are:
- Looking at cases of non-accidental injury (NAI) in infants under the age of 1, how well does the safeguarding system understand the role of the father / male carer?
- How can the safeguarding system be more effective at engaging, assessing and planning for and with men in the protection of children (or those for whom they have parenting responsibility)?
