Child death overview panel

What is the Child Death Overview Panel (CDOP)?

A CDOP has been established between the Islands Child Protection Committee (ICPC) in Guernsey and Alderney and the Safeguarding Partnership Board Children (SPBC) Jersey. This panel will consider all child deaths under 18, excluding stillbirths and planned terminations. The role of the panel is advisory, it will consider the circumstances of individual cases, contributory factors and preventability.

What does CDOP do?

CDOP will make recommendations for action to ICPC & SPBC to prevent future similar deaths, identify patterns and trends, make SCR referrals as required, agree local procedures and provide an annual report to the SPB.

How to report a child death to the SPB in Jersey

The Safeguarding Partnership Board (SPB) has developed Multi-Agency Procedures in the case of Child Deaths in Jersey, based on best practice guidance from England, which provide a framework to be read in conjunction with Chapter of 5 of Working Together to Safeguard Children 2018. The reporting of Child Deaths is now included in the Children & Young People (Jersey) Law 2022 in Jersey.

Partnership arrangements locally are set out in a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU), which clarifies expectations on organisations with regard to safeguarding and working with the SPB.

All cases of child deaths in Jersey must be notified to the Safeguarding Board Manager, who is the designated person in the SPB responsible for collating child death information. Notifications may come from any professional involved with the case.
