SDS presenting at the LGA Conference 2017

LGA Annual Conference – Innovation Zone

We attended the LGA Annual Conference in Birmingham and gave a presentation in the Innovation Zone about the services we offer to local authorities.

With the conference theme of ‘disruption’, we were able to demonstrate how projects we have undertaken across the partnership have been able to challenge the norm, opening up opportunities to explore new ways of working discovered through thought provoking research.

We showcased several new innovative tools that have been implemented across various partners in Kent, including the new online homelessness triage tool and the housing register pre-assessment form.

We have received interest in the work being done across Kent by local authorities in other counties so we may be able to widen our reach and learn more from their ways of working which we can then share with our partners.
