Data and Planning

Data and Planning 
The data and planning subgroup acts as the research resource of the SDCSC working closely with SDCC in the collection of data to establish baseline data to inform its action plans. SDCC has undertaken the process of geo-coding data sets and this has facilitated the collection and mapping of some data sets for the CSC. The subgroup also developed a ‘Data Sharing Protocol’ to enable the sharing of data between organisations.

The Cooperation and Working Together organisation (CAWT) is a cross border initiative which has, since 2004, actively encouraged policy makers and practitioners to analyse the state of well-being of children and families to proactively plan with other agencies and service users for better outcomes.
