Hackney Council has received funding from the Department for Education to take a contextual approach to safeguarding - understanding the peer group, neighbourhood and school environments affecting a young person’s safety and well being. After a discovery phase, the team has identified the potential for tools to support social workers take a local approach. Problem to be solved Currently the data used by social workers is accessible on Mosaic, our safeguarding application. We do not use other non-personal data points to support social workers’ situational awareness. Whilst members of the community can report specific concerns about a young person, there is not a tool that captures low level incidents that may be indicators of contextual challenges.
