Digitised brokerage marketplace for child placement

This project, led by Birmingham City Council, is aiming to improve how children’s placement data is captured and analysed.

By doing this, important data such as demand supply and cost can be used to enable a more strategic and cost efficient approach to child placement across the region.

More information, including outputs and working-in-the-open activities, will be published on this page as the project progresses. In the meantime, you can read the project application (Microsoft Word Doc) to find out more.
