The Munro Review of Child Protection: Progress Report

Moving towards a child centred system

My review made recommendations that will, together, help to create a work environment that will better support professionals in giving children and young people the help they need. This report considers how well implementation of these recommendations has progressed in the year since the review’s publication, and how the child protection landscape as a whole is changing.

The overall conclusion of this report is that progress is moving in the right direction but that it needs to move faster. There are promising signs that some reforms are encouraging new ways of thinking and working and so improving services for children. There are, however, a number of reforms that still require implementation; as this happens over the next 12 months, the pace of change should be hastened further.
