Local authorities have come a long way since the days of the Integrated Children’s System, which mandated the implementation of electronic recording systems for children’s social care. Where local authority’s forms were once prescribed by central government templates, they can now be configured locally. A good case management system will support council’s chosen models of social work practice, not hinder it.
Social work models are subjective and what may work for one council, could be perceived as unsuitable for another. Considered evaluations of a variety of models are often undertaken and Liquidlogic is prepared to support all models within its case management system.
The links below outline some examples of practice models in use at councils using the Liquidlogic case management system.
