Caelan Chambers, looked-after-children team manager, Leicestershire
I am a new manager and I use Community Care Inform regularly for legal issues and case specific issues such as Traveller children and unaccompanied asylum-seeking children. There is a significant amount of information in relation to these subjects, and as a busy team manager, I find this an excellent way of finding good quality reliable information quickly.
It has allowed me to be more confident in my decision making, more robust in holding other professionals to account and more useful and supportive to my staff team. I am able to find supporting knowledge for all our frontline case work in one place.
In this type of service, it sometimes seems that an infinite number of situations or crises can arise and require and immediate response. Community Care Inform helps me and my team to ensure our responses are the correct and best practice responses.
