This paper originates from accessing the Cornwall Council website (Cornwall Council, 2010) in order to download the report of the serious case review into the murder of Steven Hoskin for teaching purposes on a Post‐Qualifying Social Work programme. However, there were another two serious case review reports posted, which were also relevant to the course. This reflective piece follows from a reading of the executive summary of one of them ‐ the Serious Case Review report into the death of JK (a 76‐year‐old female) in 2008 in Cornwall (Cornwall & Isles of Scilly Safeguarding Adults Board, 2009). While adult safeguarding is everybody's business, because of the original reason for accessing the report, the paper approaches the issues primarily from a social work perspective.
