BetterCare at Kirklees Council

BetterCare has been live in Kirklees Council since January 2017 and is currently being deployed with a number of other Local Authorities across the country. It has seen 80% of customers now fully self-serve their Financial Assessment. This shift has seen considerable savings and has freed up officer resources to be focused on the more complex and vulnerable cases, giving the customers who are most in need the support they require. 

This event will discuss some of the solutions to challenges that Kirklees Council, as well as our other partner Local Authorities, were facing such as speeding up the Financial Assessment process and reducing the number of failed care packages.

The BetterCare product continues to evolve – Looking Local will be discussing BetterCare’s roadmap, which includes significant additions such as self-service deferred payments applications, online compliant direct debit capture, integration with DWP data and a care phones/telecare assessment.
