We will be discussing a Serious Case Review from Nottingham involving the death of a 7 year old girl, known as Child J. She was found dead at the home where she lived with her Aunt under a Special Guardianship Order (SGO).  The coroner found that in the two years prior to death, Child J was the victim of sustained serious physical and emotional abuse. The coroner also concluded that during the 48 hours before she died, Child J was subjected to horrific violence resulting in multiple internal and external injuries and died as a result of an injury to her brain caused by blunt trauma which, on a balance of probabilities, was an inflicted non-accidental injury. Our session will look at the recommendations made to the various agencies involved, and how we can use this learning to improve working with families and young people.
