Systems thinking applied to Children’s Social Care: A one-day introduction for Local Authorities
June 25, 2019 in Manchester

Why systems thinking?
Leaders of children’s social care systems are familiar with the pressures of supporting children and families: escalating child protection concerns compounded by limited resources for early help; a workforce under strain, and variable costs of children’s placements, all within the context of budgets being stretched to breaking point.
In the summer of 2019, the Dartington Service Design Lab is running a series of introductory workshops on Systems Thinking applied to Children’s Social Care. As a leader in Children’s Services, you will learn about children’s social care as a dynamic system, and explore the local drivers of need, demand and pressure points. By seeing the system as a whole, you will be able to identify the best places and ways to intervene so that more children are kept safely at home.
