ChildStory: what you need to know

Have you heard lots about ChildStory but don’t really know what it is?  Is everyone talking about automated genograms but you? Worried you haven’t heard the latest on digital redaction? Or role based information sharing? And what about mobile access? ChildStory is coming your way next year so here is some info!

ChildStory is a pretty big project.  It’s going to do a lot of things to help child protection workers do their jobs and to collaborate with others.  We can’t tell you everything about ChildStory in one go.  So we made a video as a start.  It’s only two minutes long so we didn’t really get everything it’s going to do but this should give you a pretty good idea.

The big news, apart from everything it’s going to do, is that we will get Release One out the door, ready for our FACS caseworkers and frontline staff in early 2017. And we’ll follow up with Release Two, which will bring on board our NGO and some of our other government partners, in July 2017.

If you have any questions or comments, you can get in touch with us in the comments section below.  Most importantly, if you are one of our potential ChildStory users,  we’re going to start asking for help now. We’d love it if you could have a chat with the people you work with about ChildStory so turn to your desk neighbour and ask them if they’ve seen this video and talk about it at your next team meeting or maybe share it on social media.  Believe it or not, but the more conversations we have about ChildStory the better it’s going to be, so start talking.

And watch this space for more instalments – with more detail about what you can expect. In the coming days, we will review what we learned from the Practice Conference last week and how we can support people to be ready to share information.
