Latest Children's Social Care Developments

Servelec Corelogic has always been at the forefront of providing solutions to support emerging Children’s Services practice. To that end, we recently held a series of events that were focused around planning and delivering enhanced functionality in response to the needs of our Children’s customers.

On 16 April 2015, our regularly scheduled Children’s Strategy User Group was held in London at the Sadler’s Wells theatre in the heart of the City. The day’s agenda included dedicated time to provide updates on Servelec Corelogic’s latest developments in education, our new Mosaic portal and our achievements in the London Borough of Tower Hamlets for Child Protection – Information Sharing (CP-IS).  There were also customer-led updates on Signs of Safety and Children’s Centre recording and transitions.

Over lunch, there were further opportunities for customers to network and chat with Health and Social Care Information Centre (HSCIC) members on CP-IS topics.  After lunch, there were lively breakout sessions featuring timely discussions on the topics of Adoption and Permanency, Early Help, and Child Sexual Exploitation. There was an excellent turnout for the event and all participants provided valuable contributions to our strategic thinking.

Following this event, Servelec Corelogic also held a Children’s Centre Working Group meeting on 17 April 2015 at our HQ offices in Islington, London. This was another opportunity for our customers to help shape the enhancements identified to further support Children’s Centre recording using the existing event management functionality which is already built into Mosaic. The group examined ideas around how to best utilise new forms and workflow, as well as support for the ongoing reporting requirements. Attendance was again excellent and enthusiastic, with a very full session and lots of information generated.

Additionally, specifically for our Scottish customers, a Best Practice Configuration (BPC) workshop was held on 23 April 2015 at East Lothian Council to explore issues relevant to Scottish children’s services, with a focus on input from practitioners. This was a follow on to an earlier meeting in January 2015, with an agenda this time focusing on and exploring the issue of Permanency. Our Scottish customers were well represented, with delegates attending to discuss areas of practice, policy and legislation specific to Scotland as well as using Mosaic’s BPC to support this.

As these events demonstrate, Servelec Corelogic’s ongoing commitment to Children’s Services will continue to drive our collaborative initiatives with all our customers, both now and in years to come!
