Gloucestershire County Council have been working with a software provider called Liquid Logic to develop a new online children’s portal. The portal will enable professionals to complete the MARF form online, sending information directly to the front door team.
After holding a number of engagement sessions, it has been recognised that the portal needs more development to meet the requirements of professionals. Based on all feedback received, further changes will be made to ensure the portal works for everyone, improving the process for referring children and young people into the front door team. This means the portal is likely to be delayed until early 2018. Further updates will be provided as they become available.
Gloucestershire Safeguarding Children Board has launched a multi-agency child neglect toolkit to help professionals in Gloucestershire to identify and assess signs of neglect and provide support to children and families at the earliest possible stage.Find out more
