Mapping of data flow and systems across children’s services 0-19


In Bradford, various organisations that provide services to children and young people, such as health services, children’s services, education, and others, came together to co-produce a shared 0-19 Children and Young Peoples’ Outcomes Framework.

This framework measures important aspects of children and young people’s safety, health, and development from 0 to 19 years of age. The framework has been used to assess the needs of children in each ward of Bradford, revealing stark inequalities and differing patterns of needs across the wards. This understanding is now being used by prevention and early help teams to implement appropriate support in each locality and evaluate the impact of interventions. The framework is also being used as a catalyst to develop a single shared child record across organisations.
