ISBN 978-1-925569-35-3
Category Annual reports
Publication Date 28 June 2017


The Report of reviewable deaths 2014 and 2015 considers the ‘reviewable’ deaths of 54 children that occurred in NSW in those two years. The deaths were reviewable because the child died in circumstances of abuse or neglect, or in suspicious circumstances, or the child was in care at the time of their death.

Included in the report is our review of a vulnerable group of young people in care who died by suicide or in risk-taking circumstances, and a review of 124 neglect-related deaths that occurred in NSW over a 10 year period from 2006 to 2015.

Separately to our report, the Reporting of Fatal Neglect in NSW is the result of work we commissioned from Dr Deborah Scott at the Australian Institute of Family Studies. Dr Scott reviewed our reporting of fatal neglect in relation to reporting in other States and countries.
