5. Stockport child death overview panel - statutory responsibilities and arrangements

This document details the process that the council and Stockport CCG will undertake to make sure that all child deaths are reviewed under the requirements of the Children Act 2004, as amended by the Children and Social Work Act 2017 and Working Together 2018.

We're fully committed to “the process of systematically reviewing the deaths of children which is grounded in respect for the rights of children and their families, with the intention of learning what happened and why, and preventing future child deaths.” (Working Together to Safeguard Children, 2018).
