Digital Safeguarding Special Interest Group
Speakers: Harry Angus, Millie Devereux and Magda Jurczuk
Chair: Sarah Carlick
Social Finance is a not-for-profit consultancy that works with governments, charities and business worldwide. They have worked in Children’s Services for over a decade, and have a large programme focused on addressing the very largest and most entrenched digital and data challenges within social work.
In this session, Millie, Magda and Harry from the Data + Digi team discuss two recent children’s services projects; a research project exploring barriers to information sharing within children’s social care and another which sought to gain a deeper understanding of the challenges being experienced by social workers through their recording on case management systems.
This session discusses the findings from these two research projects, and explores the practical steps that can be made to address these challenges locally. And finally, it offers a deep dive into the wider opportunities to bring about systemic change in these areas.
