East Sussex Council’s Children’s Services has developed a range of approaches to improve social workers’ confidence, skills and usage of digital technology.

Led by the Principal Social Worker Nicola McGeown, in close collaboration with IT colleagues, the council has developed a digital toolkit providing access to advice, guidance and information for social workers to use. And the council have developed its own digital resources.

Nicola shares her insights in the film on what councils should consider.
