Chair: Dr Sarah Carlick
Speakers: Gary Davies, Cordie Gwilym
Gary Davies is going to talk on ‘ Using data wisely to improve integrated partnership working’ and explain the work he is currently involved in relating to the Josh Macallister review of Social Care funded by the Dept of Education.
A brief overview of what the session will cover
Children themselves rarely engage directly with the child protection system unless they are already referred into the system by a third party adult. New technologies have enabled children to communicate in different ways than previously. Could an ‘app’ facilitate children’s direct access for advice, help and response from the child protection systems such as the MASH. What is required is to co-produce new ways of working at the front door of child protection to extend the current socio-technical framework to improve outcomes for children.
