Replace paper-based forms
Your paper-based forms will be replaced by electronic alternatives, which saves time and enables the immediate secure storage of information.
Integrate with E-CINS to identify trends
Via E-CINS, you can produce reports that provide a range of useful information. These help leaders and analysts to identify trends.
Save time on administration
The data from your Referral Forms auto-populate a management desk saving you 100’s of hours in administration time.
Access on mobile
Forms can be completed via a mobile device or tablet and securely accessible via a link without the need to log into a system.
You can filter results across several criteria such as mental health, financial position, employment status and age.
Create automatic referrals
Referrals can be triggered automatically based on certain criteria. For example, you may wish to create an automatic referral for young people at risk.
Secure Electronic Forms
Replace several spreadsheets with one holistic automated process.
Many different types of organisations are still using cumbersome paper-based forms that need to be completed and processed manually. It’s an inefficient use of everybody’s time and, more importantly, it isn’t a secure way of collecting sensitive or personal data.
The Empowering-Communities’ encrypted Referral Forms are a fast, efficient and secure way to complete forms, accessible via a weblink so there’s no need to log in to any system and can be completed while on the move. All information is automatically populated into a Triage and Management desk saving significant time, improving accuracy and allowing for interactions and decisions to be recorded.
Social Return on Investment
The financial savings and positive social benefits offered through this automated process far outweigh the cost of the solution.
Improve outcomes through collaboration.
By giving all local professionals access to a collaborative network, everyone is better placed to address the needs of the vulnerable people they’re connected with. When partners work together, they can build a more comprehensive picture of an individual’s situation and ultimately improve outcomes.
Filtering and Automatic Referrals
Create detailed multi-partner reports without having to compile data from multiple systems.
The Triage and Management Desk gives you the ability to collect data across a a range of different criteria. For example, a practitioner may wish to identify information from a Referral Form relating to mental health issues. In addition, the desk can automate a number of processes, such as referral to partner organisations. This means that you can trigger a home visit automatically when a set criteria is met. Or maybe you would like to send all youth-related risk factors to an appropriate service.
Produce reports and highlight trends
Many practitioners and analysts often have to battle with manual forms and several spreadsheets when trying to run reports. As the management desk dovetails neatly into E-CINS, reports are much more readily available. This not only saves time but it also improves accuracy by reducing human error.

Years of experience
Tried and tested
The type of information sharing [provided by Empowering-Communities’ products] allows us to anticipate an offenders likely behaviour in custody and also enables our Offender Supervisors to identify programmes and courses that need to be undertaken in custody which are designed to lower an offenders risk of re-offending.

There are some vulnerable groups who need additional support to help them manage the conversion to Universal Credit. This new way of working is a fantastic step forwards and will save both practitioners and residents a great deal of time.
COUNCILLOR SARAH RUSSELL / DERBY CITY COUNCIL
An offender was being released from prison and my team had concerns that the offender would try to make contact with the victim, potentially affecting their safety. A PCSO made a note on E-CINS that the offender was due to be leaving prison within the next few days. We would not normally be privy to that information, but because it was flagged on the Victim’s profile, we were able to quickly contact the victim and hold a face to face meeting to assess the level of risk to them.
