Since 1877, Berry Street has worked to ensure that every child has a good childhood, growing up feeling safe, nurtured and with hope for the future.

Jenn, a social worker working on the Family Finding project, wanted a tool for social workers to better track and record the extended family of a child in the child protection system. Even though there is more work still to do, Jen was thrilled to have made a working tool that she felt was a game-changer for all social workers.

Social workers can now easily map a child’s relationships without wading through mountains of case notes allowing them to better understand and thus better serve their clients.
