Munro Review of Child Protection

Better Frontline Services to Protect Children

On 10 June 2010, ministers announced the launch of a review of child protection, headed by Professor Eileen Munro.

The Secretary of State for Education asked Professor Munro to conduct a review of the system, with a focus on strengthening the social work profession, to put them into a better position to make well-informed judgements based on up-to-date evidence in the best interests of children and free from unnecessary bureaucracy and regulation.
