Welfare Call was established in 2002 to assist Local Authorities, Education Services, Social Services and Children & Families Departments in the collection and analysis of attendance and attainment data for looked after children. Our main aim is, ultimately, to help in safeguarding looked after children, but in doing this we also impact in a number of other areas. We complement the children and education establishments (whether that be mainstream schools, residential homes, PRU’s or alternate provisions), helping to improve school attendance and attainment, whilst offering a fully committed service by all employees to gather, manage, distribute and communicate accurate and reliable information and data.
Welfare Call currently works on behalf of 100+ local authorities throughout the UK and monitors approximately 28,000 looked after children on a daily basis.
Over the past 15 years Welfare Call has enjoyed significant growth and as such we can now offer a wider portfolio of services: these include but are not limited to:
Comprehensive attendance reporting system via daily communications with education providers and alternate provisions.
Youth Offending Service (YOS)
Welfare Call now monitors the attendance and attainment of children who are now engaged with the youth offending service.
Special Educational Needs (SEN)
We can monitor children who have special education needs regardless of whether they are looked after or not.
Children Missing Education (CME)
Monitoring the engagement of children at provisions arranged by the local authority (CME Team).
