Common Data Model for Children’s Services Statutory Returns


This discovery will focus on developing a standardised reporting approach for statutory returns, developing a deep understanding of the users needs from this process.

Every day, Children’s Services Departments (CSDs) make key decisions deciding the future of vulnerable children without timely and relevant comparable data.

Statutory returns processes are very inefficient and cost-intensive. Each CSD spends upwards of 3 months creating comparable datasets on vulnerable children, collected once a year, costing £50k per authority.

Funding received: £80,000
