In an article published by Government Computing, Karen Reeve, Head of Children, Families and Community Health at Swindon Borough Council, talks about the work they have been doing in the authority to keep vulnerable children safe.
Swindon Council wanted to ensure that key information on vulnerable children could be easily shared between health and social care teams. Previously, this was a time-consuming process whereby the information could take a while to get to the relevant practitioner responsible for the case.
This led to the council becoming one of the first to roll out a new solution as part of the Child Protection – Information Sharing (CP-IS) project. Karen talks about the software provided by Capita One being the vital link between the authority's social care system and the national CP-IS database to bring this to life.
The council is already starting to see the benefits in helping teams working with vulnerable children make informed decision and support multi-agency working.
