There has been a significant shift in the nature of demand for children social care
services as a direct and indirect consequence of COVID-19. Understanding the level and complexity of this demand is a priority in enabling us to support our communities’ recovery from COVID-19.
As part of the Essex Centre for Data Analytics’ work to understand the wider societal impact of COVID-19, colleagues from Essex County Council, Essex Police, and the University of Essex have analysed trends in services to determine the level of demand and risk of child abuse and serious child neglect and would like to share the insight with you.
Please join us for a webinar, during which we will share the immediate, medium and long-lasting impact on demand for children social care and severity of harm that has accumulated during lockdown.
We hope that by sharing this valuable insight we can identify opportunities to work together to prepare for future demand, intervene early and prevent and protect some of our county’s most vulnerable children from harm.
The webinar will take place on 11th November between 2pm and 3pm and will be hosted by the Essex Centre for Data Analytics. Speakers will be: Nicola Mallet – Head of Profession, Data and Analytics, ECC; Stephen Simpkin, Data Science Fellow, ECC; and Mark Johnson, Head of Data and Analytics, Essex Police.
