Camden Council, one of London's largest local authorities, has partnered with datb to develop a solution to meet the requirements of the Homelessness Reduction Act.
The Homelessness Reduction Act 2017 (HRA) came into force in April 2018. It was the biggest change to homelessness legislation in 40 years and it brought in new duties to prevent and relieve homelessness.
With this new Act came a requirement to manage data relating to those that could be affected, and for detailed XML-based reporting of outcomes to central government. Accordingly, Camden council needed a solution to this need. We were delighted when they chose our kinodb platform to quickly stand-up an environment to meet this legislative requirement.
Working closely with the business has allowed datb's developers to iteratively develop an application to manage the complex business process from initial application by a member of the public threatened with homelessness, through the case management process, to the web service submission of H-CLIC reports to the Ministry for Housing, Communities and Local Government (MHCLG).
