Significant Incident Review Group (SIRG)

Professionals and organisations in Lincolnshire with a role in protecting children, need to reflect on the quality of services and learn from their own practice and that of others.

Good practice should be shared so that there is a growing understanding of what works well. Equally, when things go wrong, there needs to be a robust and objective analysis of what happened and why. Lessons can then be learnt and services improved to reduce the risk of future harm to children

The purpose of SIRG is to oversee all open serious incident case, the associated action plans and consider examples of good multi-agency practice.

Chair: John O'Connor, children's services, LCC
