Multi Agency Learning Reviews (MALR)
Under the Working Together (2015) guidance, LSCBs are advised to conduct reviews of cases which do not meet criteria for SCRs, but which provide valuable lessons about how organisations are working together to safeguard and promote the welfare of children. Although this is not a statutory requirement, such reviews are important in highlighting good practice as well as identifying improvements which need to be made to local services.
Learning briefs are available below to share the learning identified within reviews.

Comparing methodologies for Case Reviews
In 2017, the Lancashire Safeguarding Boards commissioned an independent review of the methodolgies used in undertaking Serious Case Reviews and Safeguarding Adult Reviews. The purpose of the review was to evaluate the benefits and deficits of the Traditional and the Welsh model approach to reviews, in order to seek assurance that the Welsh model is the most effective approach moving forward.
