LookingLocal - CareSpace

Supporting adults with care needs in a smart, digital platform

Better Outcomes for Customers, Bigger Savings for Councils

CareSpace is a platform to help Local Authorities meet their obligations under the Care Act, which requires them to provide information and access to resources for people who need
care and support. Using unique harvesting technology, the platform draws information from a wide range of sources, while keeping it local and relevant.

CareSpace provides the public with a central hub offering immediate access to information and services from various organisations and groups, all underpinned by a bespoke content management system. CareSpace is unique in that it requires minimal creation of content from partners, and instead uses advanced technology to curate Local and National content from
mega platforms and draws on social media as well as more ‘traditional’ sources of information, like trusted third-sector websites, to deliver a heavily tailored service to suit the needs of partners.
