A child-centred system: the government's response to the Munro review of child protection

This response to the Munro review is in 2 parts: an overarching narrative and a grid with specific responses to each of the recommendations.

Detail

In June 2010, the Secretary of State asked Professor Eileen Munro to conduct an independent review of child protection in England.

This is the government’s response to the Munro Review of Child Protection. It was informed by an Implementation Working Group (IWG), drawing on expertise from local authority children’s services, the social work profession, education, police and health services.

This response is the first step on the journey to create the conditions for sustained, long-term reform of the child protection system to deliver improved outcomes for our most vulnerable children and young people. The response is in two parts: an overarching narrative and a grid with specific responses to each of Professor Munro’s recommendations.
