Case Studies and Local Learning


The NSPCC provides information on Safeguarding concerns: practice examples to highlight the steps you should take and the further resources available to help you keep children in your organisation safe.

When a child dies, or is seriously harmed, as a result of abuse or neglect, a local child safeguarding practice review may be commissioned to identify how local professionals and agencies might improve the way they work together to safeguard children and identify effective practice. Learning from local reviews in Hampshire and the Isle of Wight can be accessed on the HSCP and IOWSCP websites.

The NSPCC also holds a national library of published reviews that you can search using your sector to see learning from other areas.

Case studies

Case studies are real-life, anonymous stories highlighting how agencies and organisations have worked to safeguard, protect, and support children and their families. They are an effective learning tool, providing professionals with the ability to see services and tools in action, understand a situation from a different perspective and demonstrate areas of good practice.

If you think you have a case study that would benefit the wider community and voluntary workforce, please email
