Optimising data to transform early intervention programmes

Empowering you to change people's lives

Identifying and supporting families who need to turn their lives around is challenging for local authorities and their partner agencies.

The most immediate problem is fragmented data, with incomplete or inconsistent information failing to present a clear picture. As a result, it’s hard to evaluate what’s working well and what isn’t. Targets could be missed and stretched resources misdirected. Critically, those families who need help may not receive it.

Sentinel’s Think Family Data Hub is successfully enabling UK local authorities to overcome these issues, transforming their programmes and driving earlier, appropriate intervention.

Our software matches and integrates data from all available sources to provide up-to-date, holistic and user-friendly records of individuals and family units. The platform also facilitates collaborative and proactive working.

Fully configurable, it puts you in control of setting profiling criteria and the scenarios that trigger automatic alerts – empowering you to deliver the interventions that families need. Changing lives.

Developed to meet the evolving requirements of the Supporting Families (Troubled Families) programme, the agile solution also helps our clients conform to the Data Maturity Model while enabling them to look ahead to future Government initiatives.
