Using data to improve children’s care and protection

Wednesday 24 February 2021

How can data from last year help child care in the future?

The past year has been challenging in many ways, but we have also seen important progress and positive change, both in response to the coronavirus crisis and in other ongoing improvement work.

Join CELCIS for a discussion of how data-informed initiatives are having a direct impact on improving services and outcomes for children and young people in need of care and protection. Our data team will offer a perspective on what’s changed in data use in the sector since the beginning of 2020, including the impact of the PACE programme, the growing importance of the child protection minimum dataset, and the role of data in response to COVID-19.

Colleagues from our local authority partners will join in to explore the direct impact that changes in provision informed by these data sets have had on children, young people and families.

The event will close with a discussion of where our approaches to using data to understand the experience of children to improve services have room to continue to grow and improve. As an event focused on data as a practical tool for supporting practice and decision-making, this webinar will be of interest to practitioners and managers, local authority staff with data-related responsibilities, and the academic community.

Who is taking part?

Taking part in the discussion are:

  • From CELCIS, Micky Anderson, Carol Ann Anderson, and Alexander McTier
  • Caroline McConnell, data lead at East Dunbartonshire
  • Scott McCallum, service manager at Midlothian
