In the UK, public sector organisations are constantly being asked to do more with less, and rising demand for services amid budgetary pressures is making certain services unsustainable. In particular, local authorities are facing rising demand for social services support and safeguarding services whilst dealing with budget cuts.
Areas where these issues are particularly acute are Children’s and Adults services and the prevention of homelessness.
The growing numbers of children and young people requiring support has put significant pressure on local authorities, who are struggling to find appropriate care and currently represents 73% of local authority spending on children’s services, up from the 58% recorded in 2010/11.

“Data has never been so powerful. Our approach helps councils to identify families at greatest risk, before they are in crisis. This allows councils to intervene with the most vulnerable individuals and families in a more targeted, effective way, and potentially reduce the number of safeguarding cases, allowing professionals to dedicate more time to working with families that need the most help”
