Panel named for Munro Review of child protection

  • Comment

Association of Directors of Children’s Services president Marion Davis is to sit on the panel for Prof Eileen Munro’s Review of child protection, the Department for Education revealed.

Ms Davis will be joined by Barnardo’s chief executive Martin Narey, Prof Sue White of Lancaster University, Bexley LBC senior safeguarding officer Melanie Adegbite, and district judge Nicholas Crichton.

Ms Munro, who is professor of social policy at the London School of Economics, was commissioned to carry out a review of children’s social work last month.

The wide-ranging review will focus on removing bureaucracy from social work practice, encouraging inter-agency working, and is expected to build on Lord Laming’s progress report and Moira Gibb’s Social Work Task Force.

Speaking at the time the review was announced, children and families minister Tim Loughton said he was delighted that Prof Munro had accepted the invitation.

“I believe Professor Munro is well placed to take on this complex and wide-ranging review, with her extensive experience in child protection research,” he said.

“I am very grateful to her for taking on this work.”

Prof Munro will present a first report in September, interim findings in January next year, and a final report with solutions in April.
