Today the Mid and West Wales Regional Safeguarding Board publishes the report of the Concise Child Practice Review, CYSUR 3 2021, in respect of a sixteen-year-old girl who resided in Powys.

The Review has been undertaken in accordance with statutory legislation set out in the Social Services and Wellbeing (Wales) Act 2014 and accompanying guidance Working Together to Safeguard People - Volume 2 - Child Practice Reviews (Welsh Government, 2016). 

Powys County Council, Powys Teaching Health Board and Dyfed Powys Police have made the following joint statement to accompany publication of the report.

'We convey our sincere condolences to the child's family and all those who have been affected by this tragic death.

The review has been an opportunity to reflect and share learning amongst all partner organisations and practitioners on a multi-agency basis, and we acknowledge the commitment and contribution of those who have taken part in the review process.

We hope that the report will contribute to wider ongoing learning in relation to a number of key issues identified in the report so that children and their families are supported fully.'

The Mid and West Wales Regional Safeguarding Board will oversee the delivery of a regional action plan, and are committed to ensuring that lessons continue to be learnt and services improved across all agencies.
