Comply with the GDPR
Share information securely without breaching the GDPR regulations. Our products are routinely assessed by GDPR specialists to ensure full compliance.
Empower victims and vulnerable people
Simple referral forms and a ‘one front door’ approach, empower victims and vulnerable people who would not usually report to the police.
Keep everything in one place
A management desk is a central hub for all your referral activity and removes the need for multiple spreadsheets and complicated processes.
Remove licence fees
As a not-for-profit, we’re working for the greater good. For that reason, all of our products are offered without restrictive user licences.
Work the way you like
We know that every team has developed their own way of working. That’s why all of our products are created in consultation with the people that use them.
Collaborate across borders
Tackle complex county lines by sharing information with practitioners in other parts of the country and within various approved organisations.
Encrypted Referral Forms
A better way to manage referrals.
Electronic public or practitioner-facing referral forms allow anyone to raise the alarm if they’re worried about a vulnerable individual being exploited by gangs. Each referral is then sent automatically into a management desk, which removes the need for messy spreadsheets and copying/pasting.
The forms can be password-protected to limit access to an approved list of organisations. Or alternatively, made publicly accessible via a local authority or police website.
Notify all teams immediately
Every referral triggers a notification to the relevant teams to allow further investigation to be carried out regarding the individual’s background, family and known associates. All relevant information is logged securely into the system.
With so much at stake, practitioners need a secure way to share important information.
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.
Advanced Case Management
Escalate cases quickly if they require full case management.
If a vulnerable young person and/or an offender requires additional ongoing support, their case can be transferred into E-CINS easily. Multiple agencies can then deliver the right kind of joined up interventions without relying on disparate intelligence held in siloed databases.
Scalable and licence-free
Our suite of products link together to keep all of your information in one place. From initial referrals, through to risk assessments and full case management, we can make life easier for you at every step.

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.
