Practice Exchange Workshop: Children's journeys into permanence, using data to make a difference

Year: 2018
Topic: Permanence
Author: CELCIS

The PACE (Permanence and Care Excellence) team at CELCIS hosted a Practice Exchange Workshop event on 19 June 2018 in Glasgow, where we welcomed over 60 delegates from across Scotland.

It was an opportunity for delegates to hear from presenters as they highlighted examples of how data is being used in local areas. The event involved the exchange of knowledge and experience and participants considered how data around permanence can be developed further to make a positive difference for looked after children, young people and their families.

Presenters included CELCIS Permanence Data Analysts, Micky Anderson and Carolann Anderson, and Linda Davidson, Permanence Consultant.

We also welcomed Alison Penman, Locality Social Work Manager, Dumfries and Galloway to co-present on: 'Why data to support early permanence matters'.
