Making sure children receive the help they need, quicker
If you are struggling, like many other local authorities, with an insurmountable number of cases coming in for referral and assessment, the likelihood of cases escalating to CP increases, which can later see an increase in the number of children looked after. But there is a way forward.
Instantly improve the efficiency of your front door
Innovate CYPS’ team of experienced social workers and social work managers can act as a ‘Duty Service’ or clear a backlog of cases, depending on your need. We’ll complete assessments and s47 enquiries on any number of cases within statutory timescales.
A responsive, scalable solution
Before we recommend a referral and assessment solution, we take a diagnostic review of your existing service. We consider your data set over the past 12 months. This gives us an indication of the likely future number of referrals. From there, we tailor our model to meet your local requirements.
We also provide continuous assessment and regular reporting on our performance, so that you confidently know cases are being progressed within the agreed timescales.
Where we really differ as a social work delivery partner though, is in our knowledge transfer. With first-hand experience at your front door, we can help you co-produce a new way of working. One that permanently prevents drift and delay to secure better outcomes for children and young people.Insights
Let us take the pressure off
We’ll give you the capacity, support and reprieve you need to reframe your duty and assessment process so that it is far more responsive and sustainable.
