As a critical friend to local authorities, Innovate Services gives children’s social work and psychology services teams the support and headspace to explore new and innovative models of practice.

This means not only being ready with reliable support when you most need it. But also using our wide-ranging expertise to review your service delivery objectively and thoroughly. Looking at your practice models and processes through a new lens, to achieve sustainable change.

and scalable business models, we can provide a fully managed resource
to ensure you meet your statutory obligations.

But it doesn’t stop there.

The UK's first EHCP quality assurance and auditing tool, ‘Innovate Invision’ enables local authorities to ensure children and young people consistently receive high quality EHCPs. Be confident what a ‘good’ or better EHCP really looks like.

What our clients say

“The multi-agency working has been very effective and resulted in positive outcomes for young people. The intervention has been child-focused throughout and intensive work with families has meant that many cases have been stepped down and the continued support from Innovate CYPS (‘light touch’) has supported families in sustaining changes.”

Anne Stoker, Director of Children and Family Services and Principal Social Worker, Enfield Council
