Children’s service departments want to act preventatively, yet the datasets they hold lack information on the family context, making it hard to identify vulnerable children before they come into contact with care services. The Children's Commissioner's Office recently highlighted the importance of understanding the wider family context if vulnerable children are to be identified early.
View this webinar slide deck to see Policy in Practice, together with Haroon Chowdry, Head of Analysis, Children's Commissioner's Office, discuss how benefits data can give crucial information about the family contact, and how this can help with early identification.
We shared findings from our analysis of specific policy reforms, including Universal Credit, the benefit cap and the two child limit, and show what impact they will have on levels of child vulnerability.
