Using data modelling to identify vulnerable children


Brent Council

Brent Council is working with IBM to build a predictive model that could allow children most at risk of child exploitation to be identified in advance. This project uses a range of data sources from youth offending services, social care, schools and gang area intelligence. Although in its infancy, it is hoped that this model could use indicators to provide instant intelligence and insight into priority cases; including young people considered to be at a heightened risk, such as missing children and those living in a known gang area.

The LGA Labour Group exists to fight the corner for Labour councillors at a national level, both within
the cross-party Local Government Association and with the Labour Party at Westminster. The Group provide a strong voice for Labour councillors and act as a platform for ideas and innovation for all those committed to an effective localist element to Labour politics and policies.
