Webinar recording: Harnessing the power of data to transform social care

Webinar for local authority children’s and adults' services leaders

Recorded 11 September 2020

SCIE and Xantura explored how data can empower professionals to make better decisions, save money by identifying at-risk cohorts early, which prevents escalation, and improve resource planning by better predicting demand. The webinar was for directors, assistant directors, heads of service and principal social workers and included contributions from local authority partners.

With the return of localised lockdown, it is increasingly clear that COVID-19 is far from over. We are likely to see fluctuations in levels of infections and the need for highly localised responses for months to come. The economic downturn we are now entering will also lead to increased demand for adult social care, with more people facing poverty, mental ill-health and social isolation.

In this context, it is vital that local authorities have good understanding of their communities by using and interpreting the best available data. They need to understand the key risks and future demands across their local populations. They need to know how to develop specific strategies and approaches to agreed priority populations by focusing on which cohorts they are trying to target, and identifying who and where they are.
