Seven has specialist knowledge and experience of social care that is second to none, this means we are uniquely placed to adapt to the changing needs of our clients, developing new and innovative offers to help them succeed in these challenging times.
Early Intervention is now gaining momentum in the UK and we welcomed the findings made by Graham Allen in his report on Early Intervention and Professor Eileen Munro’s findings around direct work. We agree that successful, proven Early Intervention methods should form a larger and more significant part of the services offered by providers.
We understand that, in this time of financial austerity, additional money for Early Intervention is challenging to allocate, especially when many Local Authorities are still seeing record numbers of referrals, children on the child protection register and children in care.
This financial challenge leaves many senior officers asking how can more Early Intervention services be offered when costs are rising whilst budgets are being cut.
This is where Seven can help. We have developed Early Intervention models that make real nominal cash savings as well as preventative savings for Local Authorities to benefit from in the future and at the same improving outcomes for children and their families, which is the most important part of what we do.
