Child Death Review Programme

Any death of a child is a tragedy. The loss often has devastating and life-changing effects on the parents, siblings, grandparents and the wider family and community.

Identifying factors contributing to death may help prevent future child deaths.

The Child Death Review Programme (CDRP) collects information about all deaths of children in Wales or Welsh children who die elsewhere.

The information is anonymised and used by the CDRP to review what happened and to see what can be learned to prevent the same thing happening to another child or young person.


To notify us of a child death please use the notification of child death form below:
