SAVVI and iNetwork UK conference update

By Andrew Humphreys

Since June 2022 RedQuadrant has been providing consultancy support to the SAVVI project, which is the Scalable Approach to Vulnerability Via Interoperability. SAVVI, funded by DLUHC and hosted by Tameside MDC, aims to introduce data standards into the public sector, particularly local government, for finding and supporting vulnerable people. RedQuadrant consultant Andrew Humphreys is providing “SAVVI Coach” services to the project which includes leading the work with local authorities and the Ministry of Justice to adopt the SAVVI approach and standards, implement a model process, develop contextualised data models and design data use and sharing processes. 

On 11th November Andrew Humphreys spoke about SAVVI at the 17th annual iNetwork UK conference in Manchester that was attended by representatives of local authorities, DLUHC and other local government partners from across the country as part of the project’s efforts to see the SAVVI standards and approach broadly adopted by local government. You can watch a video of Andrew speaking about his work on the SAVVI project here: 

Based on success within the local projects that RedQuadrant is supporting, SAVVI is now preparing an application to the Central Digital and Data Office, within the Cabinet Office, to be adopted across Central Government Departments as the mandatory data standards for finding and supporting vulnerable people. RedQuadrant’s work with SAVVI has recently been extended to March 2023 during which time we expect the standards will be deployed by local authorities with which we have been working.
