FamilyStory is an ambitious programme of work to re-design how technology can better support Children’s Services. We want to place families and young people at the centre of their case or story to build a network of people, carers, caseworkers and service providers around them.

The FamilyStory Project is looking at the case recording systems across London Borough of Hammersmith & Fulham, Royal Borough of Kensington & Chelsea, and Westminster City Council.

To do this we have engaged FutureGov, a digital design company to work with people directly on the frontline to understand what it really means to work within Children’s Services. Their aim is to understand what it would take to rebuild the information technology systems that we use to take care of children, young people and families.

We are excited to be on this journey to discover how new technology could better support social care services and the families we work with across all three boroughs.
