Helping teams to efficiently develop and maintain secure Key Individual Networks.
Establishing a diverse Key Individual Network (KIN) helps you to serve your local community better. The Empowering Communities KINS product encourages participation via public-facing registration forms. It also lets practitioners quickly find the contacts they need via an intelligent search feature.

Access information anywhere
The KINS product gives you 24/7 secure access to the information you need, whether you’re on mobile, desktop or tablet.
Find who you need easily
KINs can be searched with multiple fields. These include geographical areas, such as districts, wards and parishes.
Encourage greater participation
Public-facing registration forms can be created that encourage members of the community to get involved and easily register for your KIN.
Create multi-user access permissions
Access permissions can be applied to a KIN profile and practitioners can also upload scanned signed consent forms.
Integrate KINs with E-CINS
Information can be accessed from a link on the E-CINS dashboard and relevant data will be attached to the appropriate profiles.
Comply with the GDPR
Share information securely without breaching the GDPR regulations. Our products are routinely assessed to ensure full compliance.
Save time by using public-facing registration forms that integrate seamlessly with E-CINS.
Key Individual Networks are a vital tool in terms of community engagement but they can be difficult to manage efficiently. The KINs product brings all relevant information together and enables practitioners to quickly search and find the individual’s they need. It also gives the public a simple way to get involved via public-facing registration forms that automatically populate a searchable database.
Create forms on your own website
Public-facing forms can be added in multiple locations to aid maximum participation. For example, you may wish to add a form to a local council’s main website along with one belonging to the police.
With so much at stake, there really is no place for those withholding 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.
Set access privileges and restrict certain information.
When used in conjunction with E-CINS, the KINS system can create and update shared profiles. But this additional information can be locked down and displayed to only those that have the appropriate level of privileges. Via a technique, known as cloaking, regular users would know that profile exists but not that the profile is part of a KIN. Only those with full access would be able to view the pertinent information.
Restrict data by region
In addition, you could also restrict access to specific areas to ensure that only your region has access to KINs information – despite the profile being accessible nationally.

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.
