Vulnerable children have complex needs that may require multiple interventions at several points in time. Building resilience is not a singular policy intervention, it spans across childhood and uses a cross-policy approach.
Digital platforms play a critical part and set new standards for structured and efficient case work, to free up time for social workers, enabling them to focus on the child in need.
Platforms and data serve as a key source for relevant, accurate and individual support for vulnerable children. This way, we spend our human capital and energy on the things that have the biggest impact on a child’s life.
