About Richmond SCP

Child Death Overview Panel

From October 2019 child deaths in Kingston and Richmond will be reviewed by the South West London Child Death Overview Panel (SWL CDOP) which has been newly established across Croydon, Kingston, Merton, Richmond, Sutton and Wandsworth in accordance with the Children and Social Work Act 2017 and updated child death review guidance.

Child death reviews were formerly conducted by Kingston and Richmond CDOP on behalf of the former Local Safeguarding Children Boards for the respective boroughs. This page retains some information published by the previous arrangements as the learning remains relevant to professionals and the public alike. We will ensure further SWL CDOP resources are available via this page as soon as possible.
