More than 10 years on, the need for social care professionals to make an impact is bigger than ever before. The Government’s austerity programme has hit the most vulnerable in society the hardest, as all forms of support have been rolled back. And time-poor professionals are struggling under the weight of ever-growing caseloads.
Over the same period, technology has advanced at an unprecedented speed. But its main use has been to make money, not solve society’s fundamental problems. And nearly 20 years after Victoria Climbie, vulnerable adults and children are still dying.
At Xantura, the status quo shocks and frustrates us. But it also galvanises us to keep going. Because the more public sector professionals can access the right insights, at the right time, the more lives can be changed or even saved.
