Op 9 maart 2021 tussen 10:00 en 11:30 uur komen Noord-Europese executives en leidinggevende op het gebied kinderbescherming en jeugdzorg online bij elkaar. Bij deze online conferentie zullen key speakers uit Groot-Brittannië, Noorwegen en Denemarken meer over vertellen, hoe de digitalisering van case work hogere efficiëntie waarborgt, en zo meer capaciteit vrij maakt voor betere bescherming en zorg voor kinderen en jeugd.
Voertaal van het evenement is Engels.
How can next generation municipalities give vulnerable children a future they deserve?
Early childhood is a critical period that determines the ability to achieve a lifetime of health, social and economic potential.
Almost 27 million children in Europe are at risk of poverty or social exclusion, even in countries of economic growth. Millions of children rely on the support of social workers, and the increased demand puts immense pressure on the ability to support these vulnerable children.
For too long, social care systems have failed to provide a foundation that truly supports vulnerable children.
Social care systems have reached a breaking point. Across countries, problems with these systems have already been documented, and many have worked hard to establish what needs to change.
Investing in vulnerable children is not only an investment in disadvantaged individuals, families, and communities, it is an investment in more resilient societies and inclusive economies.
But how do we transform social care systems for children to support their full potential?
To succeed, we need to get rid of rigid administration and dysfunctional legacy systems and bring social care into the digital age.
But digital transformation projects often end up delayed, over budget or delivering false promises. In the case of care systems, this prolongs the pain of the vulnerable people being protected. Even more so in the light of the recent COVID-19 crisis that challenges and changes people’s life and livelihood.
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.
Join us for this very special event, as we offer the stage to key decision makers and municipalities across countries to share learnings on how modern platforms and data can support vulnerable children.
For the first time ever, you will learn how Denmark, Norway and the UK pave the way for future societies and next generation municipalities to ensure proper understanding and full support for vulnerable children. To give them the future they deserve.
