Protection of people at risk within our society is some of the most important work public sector agencies carry out. It requires a strong multi-agency approach, sharing the right information at the right time in order to deliver coherent strategies with early tactical interventions.
Minttulip & Microsoft hosted a public sector-wide event on 11 July in London and focused on protection of our at-risk people and how the public sector can work more effectively and efficiently across multiple agencies. This was a new style interactive session with lively discussion bringing adult social care, councils, healthcare, police, fire, central government, and charities together to drive conversations on and how new technology and practical cultural change can empower better ways of working. Here’s a snapshot of what was shared by multi-agencies.
In the afternoon, Sharon gave an inspiring talk on how her book helps children learn how to value themselves and others and make safer choices in their lives. Delivered by the teacher supported by the emergency services and local community role models. Gives children the tools to prevent them being groomed or drawn into violence and crime.
The mood lightened when 7 children in the pilot programme, from Holy Cross Catholic Primary School in Essex received a standing ovation after each student told us how important they felt this was to them. Sharon expressed gratitude to Essex Police, Microsoft and DataArt for helping to make “Dot Com Digital”.
