Webinar recording: Digital innovations in care leavers’ services
The COVID-19 crisis has swept away some longstanding barriers to digital working, and demonstrated the benefits and opportunities of this shift, as well as the challenges. For young people leaving care, who may no longer be in direct contact with children’s services, digitally-enabled approaches have huge potential to increase engagement, develop better insight and improve outcomes.
This webinar discusses learning and insights from recent digital and data innovations in care leavers’ services, including work to understand outcomes and experiences from the perspective of care leavers. It also dives into Leaving Well, a digital tool developed with six local authorities across the UK that can now be adopted by other councils to support improved care leaver practice.
The webinar also marks the launch of our new Care Leaver Improvement Community. This is an opportunity to join us and other services in a collaboration to improve your care leaver provision through digital innovation, better use of data and insight, and practice support.
